A woodworking expert should be able to look at this and know exactly how it works and what is missing (not much I think). Closed, box measures about 18 ¾ by 10 ½ by 5. It is dusty and dirty, and coming as found. Do not see a name on it. Would be great addition to any period museum or personal collection.
Very cool old piece for the woodworker. I will post as much as possible in-between my search for a job (out of work).
