Good day
I have bought this box yesterday. It is a hard paper box covered in silk and satin fabric. Think it is a pincushion of some sorts. It fits into a frame made out of silver. It looks like it could be Persian but I could not find any hallmarks except some writing scratched at two places on the rim. It is not plated. Any idea where it may be from and how old it could be? The widest part of silver is 8cm and it is 3.3cm high. It weighs about 90 grams.
Thanks
Jannie
