You know those cheap disposable cardboard boxes cigarettes come in these days? Well, 250 years ago, tobacco came in hand made brass boxes. This is one of those boxes, recycled and loved over the centuries until the repoussé designs nearly rubbed off. Based on the Hussars charging at each other and the double headed eagle on the reverse, my best guess is that the Dutch made this one for the Prussian market.
