Does anyone have any idea what this is? At first I was thinking it was a box to view a magic lantern slide, but the hole seems too small. The dimensions are around 4 x 2.
The engraved picture on the inside lid, in the second photo, looks to be some devilish character.
I have no idea under which category this should be placed. I believe it's Victorian era, but please feel free to re-classify this.
Any thoughts on this piece will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
