An unusual eight sided box of dugout construction with elaborate relief carved panels of star design set within roundels and diamond shapes. The lid of red stained fruitwood with gouge carved decoration rising to an ebonised finial. Internally painted sage green with original lead damper. I think this could be American sailors work. Mid 19th century.
