A very cute and very old miniature box, probably made in India between 60-80 years ago.

I think this is made from ox-bone, polished to give it a glossy burnished look. The sides are naturally grained and curved, and it is hinged and decorated with brass fittings, giving it the appearance of a tiny treasure chest. The top has a small polished cabochon stone edged in beads of brass, and the box is lined with black felt or velvet. The clasp is fashioned to look like a little face with two eyes...

A sweet little pill box, or maybe for a special tiny treasure or ring...

It is in great condition with no damage and just appropriate age-related wear. It measures 5 cm/2" x about 4 cm/1.5", and weighs just 47 gms; estimated packaged weight is 400 gms.
