A really unique and unusual Antique British Edwardian item, a double hinged box. inside there is a wooden box that has had a silver box made over the top of it. It appears as though the bottom has some sort of fine leather as a cover. The box is unlined and has signs of wear consistent with age! Some markings on the lids have been over zealously polished and worn.
