Looks like cloisonne enamel, done in the Islamic style. I suspect the first word is written in Arabic, which implies this box was made somewhere like Saudi Arabia or Dubai. The second word looks like a name Samir.

Likely to be just a few years old - you see them all over in ethnic outlets in London.

thanks pot. i see what you mean.. i went for this item bearing in mind that it isn't that old... most of all!!! because of the amount of craftsmanship that has gone in making this item... the enameling and details is superb... think this might be antique of the future :)

Nothing wrong with it - age isn't everything.
