    Hello
    This little box was purchased about 25 years ago in a small a antique shop in Virginia. It has been put away for a long time. I dont even remember what I paid for it.
    Do any of you collectors know this particular pattern? What were these boxes designed for?
    Thank you as always
    Hergrower

      it could be a matchbox as keramikos say, but I think that it is a cigarette case,

      Carmen is an opera about a woman working in Sevilla Spain into a cigarette factory, the metal part is a woman like Carmen

      Maybe 4 cigarette papers? Or like you said just to sit up and look at as a trinket box?

      This could be something that held a sewing kit. At least some thread and a needle, right?!? IDK??? It could have also been meant to carry a cotton ball with perfume or something like that as well.
