J B & S in little squares in really old writing style on the London date chart it is the writing of 1750's underneath then under that is E P B M again in little boxes then under that is 9135 the box is in good condition and is lined

Your box is electroplate (EPBM = electroplated britannia metal) and may be British, but without a picture we cannot identify JB&S. It can be no older than late 19th century.
