Need help identifying these items
Hi I am a newbie to this forum and have just started buying older/antique furniture. I have a few items that I have no idea about age/value, though I am not really concerned about the value. I have lurked on these forums for awhile and finally decided to join. I would really appreciate any help you guys could offer with these pieces.
The first one is an old hinged box that my grandmother had owned since atleast the mid 1960s. I have had it for the last few years. It has no markings and from the construction does not look like it is much older. It still has a store tag for 199.95, but she is such a bargain shopper I suspect she probably got it at a yard sale. It appears to be sculpted brass(?) on the outside wrapped around a wooden frame. The wood is unfinished and darker naturally. I have tried to look for something similar but haven't seen anything. Here are some pics
