Wow, yeah, that front view of the box is reminding me of....some type of royal crown or something.
Is the insert removable? Guess I wonder the same thing about your blue velvet vision too.
I am really starting to enjoy the box library we have all built. Turning out to be a valuable addition to the forum. Thanks for sharing.

The insert isnt removable. And that means I put the booklet in the lit. Not sure where you should keep it.

This blue velvet is prone to discolouration. I have another wonky one where it turned purple. Might dissect it to see if I can find makers clues.

A decomposed box. Nu clues about the maker.

The box is metal and not plastic molding..
