    I've seen boxes like this one at a US auction in 2015 with that description. 14 cm x 25 cm x 18 cm. If you have another theory about its origin, then tell me !

      Anglo-Indian is a possibility.

      Thanks all for your knowledgable comments ! I'll have them in mind when I revise the boxes fact sheet.

      Very interesting piece, are those metal partitions that hold the pieces of bone on the surface of the box? It does have an Asian feel to it. But nothing specifically traditional for one country.

      Buddhist influence, can be both from India and the Far East. Thanks for posting.

      My guess is thin brass plates, but I'm not sure. Thanks for the comment.

      Thanks for the comments. Apparently some sort of consensus about Anglo-Indian.
