Okay, so you could be lucky enough to have 'FEU' initials :) but, more likely is that this little treasure is an opulent matches box (feu translates to fire). Ebony or ebonized walnut veneers with carved edging and brass string inlays. Truly an extravagant match box, wouldn't you say...leave it to the French. The interior in finished burled or birds eye maple, very finely crafted inside & out.

Very good condition. One small veneer chip on the right side and a very faint lift to the left of the lid. See pictures for measurements.
