Box Think it's Scottish...not sure what it is!

Hi There

sorry for posting in the British section but I wasnt sure if it was indeed a thistle.

I’m not even sure what the box actually is…or if it’s silver…

It has a mark that we think is a thistle…

The knob on the top seems to have been added later.

The metal seems quite soft…

Any help identifying this or what it is would be appreciated!

looks like pewter to me.

It’s not a Scottish thistle as would be seen on silver. I am inclined to agree that it’s most likely to be pewter.
