    Is there a lining or anything inside...maybe for use as a humidor? The style is IMHO purely decorative.

    Is there a "Made in India" tag on the bottom? This looks like a 20th century (likely 1960s or 1970s) artistic interpretation of a British Army Shako as a trinket box, and the copper just screams India to me....

    Hello Kazzia, welcome to the forums.

    I also think it looks like an ice bucket from the 1960s-1970s era.

    I agree with John42768 that it looks like an ice bucket.
