What Is It?

Anybody know what this is?

I’ve had it for quite awhile. So long that I’m not sure where I got it. Either at The Little House in Pryor Creek (one of my two absolute fav places at that time for cool old stuff) or at Grandmother’s house when I lived there.

I don’t know what it is. It looks like a picture to hang on the wall with a really thick frame. But (gasp/wink) it opens!

On the inside of the lid is a mirror.

The bottom of the box is divided. The back is covered with cardboard. That old gray-colored card stuff. I know that probably means it’s not old or was inexpensive to start with, but I don’t care. I love it.

Does anybody know?

Is it a picture box? Glove or handkerchief  box?  A place to hide jewelry? Money?

Can somebody tell me?
