This wooden box with a hinged lid measures 5 1/2 inches long, 3 15/16 inches wide, and 1 5/8 inches tall. The top is beautifully decorated with a lighter wood (possibly satin wood) inlay depicting gryphons, flowers, and tendrils. The sides also have a straight wood inlay. The base is covered in green felt. There are no signatures, however we believe this item was made in Italy. It may have been a container for cigarettes, or playing cards. There is no odor of tobacco. The condition is excellent. There are no breaks or losses. We estimate that it was manufactured in the early to mid-20th century.
