Subject:Decorated Metal Hinged Box
Posted By: Marilyn L Wed, Dec 19, 2018 IP: 2601:285:8380:217f:a

Hello, I found this years ago probably in a flea market. I'm curious to know if any of you experts can tell me something about it. It measures
6"x 4" and is around 6" tall to the point. It is quite heavy at 4.5 lbs. A magnet does not stick.
I appreciate your time!

Possibly an Indian bronze jewelry or dowry box that was cast by the lost wax method. See link for an example in a variant style.

Best regards,

Bill H.
