Closest match in ad I know of is from 1919, an ad 6 years prior to patent in 1925.

Great find! Twice the size as the “ladies” service boxes?

Do you think the metal wire is original? Guess it is because i saw another box with it. Or velvet missing.

Side to side it is 24 centimeters. From front to back it's 5.25 cm.
Yes, metal prongs belong.
