An early 20th century Siamese/Thai silver niello table box. Originally it would have been intended for cigarettes or cards etc. The wood lined interior has a slot for a divider (not present). The top features an image of a wat at the water side, and the sides have images of dragon boats being paddled. Today these make great desk boxes or jewellery boxes. No makers marks that I can find but tests as sterling grade silver. Very decorative and stylish.
Some pieces of black oxide missing to the lid around one of the edge bands, and in the clouds in the sky - see images. Normal age and wear. Interior divider plate not present.
