Looks to be 18th or 19th century. I was told it was French, but it may be Italian. Made of brass, wood and an over-lay of leather embossed with an unkown ivory-like white material. The leathers is loose, brittle and chipping. The interior is in good condition, one slight dark mark. Take note that the latch does not close completely over the bottom hook. The leather is still intact. The brass has developed a beautiful patina that enhances the floral motifs. Measures 8 1/2″ across by approximately 6.5″ high and a little over 6.5 wide. Box will be carefully wrapped and packed with care and plenty of bubble wrap. I will also be listing a set of antique French 19th c. Feel free to ask questions or request additional pictures.
