Any idea what the notch on the lid’s edge might be for? There is no matching one on the bowl’s rim for alignment.

    Looks to me like from India - used for dried fruit or spices, they usually had/have removable wooden dividers (the 'notch' looks like a chip to me)...

    These boxes are not machine made.

  7. The person who did the stippling spent a lot of time doing it; but, if that's your task then so what.

    @kardinalisimo Looks like a chip and reminds me of the wood bowl I have some of my shaving soap in .... India ? Maybe , but I get a handmade 1920's vibe out of it ..... If you can determine what the wood is it would help .

    Looks like the carved monkey pod bowls and boxes which have been sold for years.
