    I can't see the inside of yours – or the bottom of the one at this link, but they appear to be similar? My uncle, who is in his mid-80's bought one similar to the one at this link when he was 15. He told me it was carved from one piece of wood. Hope it helps!

    different things. it's called cinnabar box which has hundreds layers of lacquer on top and then carved into to make motif. The char spells "made in Qianlong period" but no way to be that old. Just decades old and worth something.
