We don’t know what to tell you other then this trinket box had been in the family for 35 or so years.
I do not know who made it or where it came from.
It’s covered with BONE, and the body is Copper/Zink, with fine Brass and Silver ROPE design surrounding the box framing the Bone. It Has CORAL in two places for design.
It measures 4″ wide x 3.5″ deep x 3″ high
The hinging is good and tight and closes tight as well. NO DAMAGE that I can find.
NO makers mark nor origin.
I call it ART DECO STYLE however that’s in the eyes of the beholder, some say Native American in design, I just can’t pin point what design it would be called, I’m betting that it’s a one off.
It can be from anywhere at anytime, I just can’t take my Eyes off of it, soooo unusual and striking…. THIS NOT AT ALL NEW…..WE do know it’s at the very least 40 y/o.
