A small brass box with floral and geometric engraving on each of its eight sides and its lid.

The lid fits tightly on the upper portion of the box, guaranteeing that the contents are kept from drying out.

The box and its engraving are in very good condition, and the exterior has been polished to a lovely lustre.

Dutch, ca. 1700

Dimensions: 5” X 2-1/4”; 1-3/4” tall
