    Does anyone know anything about wood boxes?  This box has a thin metal decorated overlay that covers the top.  There is no lock on this box - don't know if it was considered a jewelry box, desk box or trinket-type box.  I'm guessing this was from the 1920s through the 1930s.  It was my grandmother's and there were just odds and ends in it from that period in time.  It has the initials A M P Y and I have no idea what that stands for.  The inside is lined in dark green velvet.  It is stuck to the box with thin wood cylinders around the bottom edges.

    I could find no name or markings

    Is it copper? Looks like it to me.

    I'm pretty sure it is not copper
