Made from camphor wood, a natural repellent against moths and wood boring insects, the wood also has a wonderful, fresh scent.
In well used condition, handle missing on one end, brass corners are dented and bashed, and sadly it has a crack in the lid, see photos for a closer look. A nice restoration project for someone.
These boxes look great stacked up as a part of a display, or on their own for interesting vintage storage.
