Traditionally, in Asian culture, brass hinged boxes were gifted as housewarming gifts to new homeowners.  Usually they were given with a cricket inside as a sign of luck and prosperity, hence the name "cricket box" was given to these charming pieces.  This one is a bit unusual that it does not have pierced sides (what I always think of as little air holes for the cricket).  It measures 5”x3.5”x3” and is in good vintage condition with some typical wear commensurate with age and previous use.
