These boxes are in wood. They were used as make-up boxes containing tika, red/orange powder used by Indian women. These tika boxes are ancient, they probably date back to the first half of the 20th century. It is more and more difficult to find such beautiful and ancient ones, since plastic and white iron have replaced these magnificent boxes in wood.
