This is an antique union case. these were popular cases for daguerreotypes and ambrotypes.

measures 2 7/8 inches tall by 2 1/4 inches wide. Photos show the wear and tear on the case, it has a functional eye hook on its side, but the binding on the other side long since wore away.

Contains a Victorian Era photo of a young boy with blonde hair.

There is a preservation mat and a matted photograph in the box.

Here is a great website about the components of daguerrotypes and their union cases:
