A trinket box made from tin, it has South Pacific images printed on to it. The internal shelf is made from wood.

You can see from the paraphernalia within, it looks to have travelled on the HMS Suffolk in 1934.

The design as well as the collection inside leads towards a conclusion that this ship spent a lot of its time in the Pacific Ocean and Asia.

A really interesting item that we are sure would sit well into a collection.

NB: the box comes without a key.
