Vintage marquetry box. Has a brass key hole in the front, but we do not have a key. T is a lacquer over the box. Inside is red felt and ribbon hinges. In the center of the top of the box is an optical illusion design(like Escher). Box measures 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 x 2 3/8 H inches. Hinged. Good condition. It does have some issues. The top when slanted in the light looks like it has some creases or cracks in the lacquer. One spot of lacquer missing over a white diamond. T are fingerprints or smudges all over. We have not tried to clean it. When looking at the front of the box on the bottom left is some loss of the brown base and in the left rear corner a little loss. The bottom is plain wood and has some slight surface scratches and smudges. I have not idea what type of wood this is or w this originates. This is not our normal area of expertise. So, please ask any questions you may have. It is a beautiful box, but it is not perfect. The box does open and close even though t is no key.
