I bought this at a yard sale a number of years ago. I loved this little wooden box with the slide piece on top & then the swivel opening. I was told it was an old English school box, but pencils wouldn't fit in it. It is only 5 1/4" x 2 1/4 x 2 1/4". I thought it would have to be an old bank, since it had been a locking piece at one time & there was a slot under the sliding piece of wood. (No key came with the piece) The man told me it belonged to his wife, but she wasn't present to verify the information, but there was a handwritten slip of paper inside the box. There is what appears to be an old decal possibly on the top. There is a name written in pencil on the bottom of the box, but it can't be made out.
I have tried to find something like this online a number of times & find nothing like it. Can someone help me out with more information? Thanks.
