I have acquired this metal box with hinged lid, and ornate decoration with dragon form feet, it does not respond to a magnet at all.
It measures 11 x 11 x 5.5cm.
Any help would be greatly appreciatedNeed help to the origins of this box please 245a10

There are four small indentations one in each corner of the top which you can just see in the photo, can't figure put what they were for
