This pretty little box comes from England and dates from the late 19th Century. It is made of brass and has an agate lid with some visible banding on the agate. I believe it may have been a desk item, and used to hold pen nibs.
The lid is not hinged, but a lift off style. It measures 2 1/4" by 3/8", with a depth of about 1/4". It would look lovely on one's desk or could even be used to hold your pills. A nice antique gift item, in fine condition.
