Long time no post! Anyway, here is an odd box-somekind of jewelry box? What is the CORRECT name and any ideas when it was made? Please and thank you.

The CORRECT name is half moon dresser box. Dates about 1920, roughly. My grandmother had one very similar but hers held handkerchiefs.
Nice tramp art lamp in the background.

Thanks Linda, knew I could count on you. RE: the lamp... family squabble now that we know what it is. I still may get a barrel shade for it or sell, just don't know yet.

Keep it!!!
Would it help if someone said..."doesn't look like anything but garage sale stuff....made in shop class painted white."
Don't sell it......where would you find another.
