    This trinket box was a gift from my next door neighbor.They were missionaries in their younger days and traveled all over the world.This box was obtained in Africa.My neighbor is downsizing and selling their home so she was kind enough to present me with this beautiful box.

      Beautiful!
      But not African made, it is a Japanese Meiji box!
      The elephant is not an African one...
