      Interesting & makes one wonder the actual use. The French
      coffer may sound better than "casket" & we won't mention that coffer is the source of the word, coffin. LOL !!

      I'm not sure of the use!!It looks like an old treasure box to me

      Interesting. Original lining, too.

      very cool. It looks like it might have contained a bottle (from the impression in the lining in the picture but that could just be the angle).

      Looks like a neat little box. I like that interior.
