Hello all. I got this piece from an estate in Florida. It a metal box with what looks like jade slabs. Surely this is not jade but some kind of look alike. I don't know if you can call it filigree but as you can see there is a floral and leave design on all panels. I don't know what it is for. Maybe a trinket box. It measures approximately 6 1/2" x 4" x 1 3/4". I believe the metal is brass. Don't know if it is Chinese, Japanese, American, Mexico, Indian, or from the moon.
Has anyone seen something like this? What was its purpose? Any info would be appreciated.
Have a blessed day.
