Your box appears to be plated, with plate loss fairly evident in places. I don't recognise the trademark but reading from the left I see JJ in script, a crown, E, symbol, P, symbol. The E and the P may well stand for electroplate. The crown was often used by Sheffield electroplaters until the practice was banned in the 1890s so this may be a Sheffield company.
