I have a copper "box" approx. 3-1/4" x 1-3/4" and 2-1/2" tall. Marked Benedict on bottom. Has the bee in a diamond with letter "B" on each side. Nothing else, no date or numbering of the piece.The lid has a sphinx on it. The front of the "box" has an egyptian looking woman with wings. The lid is no longer attached, and it has a small crack on the back of the box. I was told that it use to have a lining inside. If so, it is no longer there either. Do you have any ideas what this could be? When was it made? and Is it worth anything?
I haven't been able to find out any info on this piece and would appreciate anything you know!
