Early miniature dovetailed blanket box or trinket box. Only 9" wide , 61/2" high. Missing 2 glue blocks behind the feet. The brass hinges may be the only metal used constructing this little gem. I am pretty sure that the wood is flaming Birch. The top of the lid has champfered eades along with 200 years of dirt and grime it would clean up but I wouldn`t touch it.Enquire!
