I have come across an arts and craft style? box (attributed to Archibald Knox, English) that has the timber section attached to the lid in the same method ,with similar ,small rosette fittings.
This seems an unusual way to attach the timber ,copper pins through top,hammered over on the back.
Is this box English ?or may it also be Japanese like mine ? Date 1900? may be clue to period of manufacturer?
Not sure how many makers would have used this method of attaching timber to lids.
Do members feel may be same maker or just a coincidence ?
