This beautiful wooden box belonged to my great grandmother. The top lifts up and the sides swing open. It looks like a burl veneer, with brass hinges and hardware. Most of the decorations on the box are nailed on. The decorations are metal and mother of pearl.
I know that my great grandmother had the box back in the 60s, but I'm told that it is much older than that.
Does anyone have an idea what this type of box was meant to be used for? Or when it might have been made?
Thank you for your help,
