    This box has a pattern on all sides including the lid. Has a key with a picture on it. Red velvet lined. Mark on base. Hoping someone can ID origin.

    Thanks for the tag, INH. Erhard & Söhne were very well known for their boxes. They've done some pretty extravagant inlaid brass/wood boxes in the Art Nouveau style.
