It's a tough one. The main body is made of brass and the cover is copper. I opted for the destructive technique. The wife is on the edge of her seat in anticipation of what is inside it! :D

Okay we're in and it's empty apart from some white residue. One for the scrap bin. Maybe it was for chapped lips? :lol:

Another option could be a vesta case?

The weight is likely due to the heavy brass mechanism for a lippy or similar. :thumbsup:

It appears that the base ring would likely turn to raise a stick of I expect lippy? It is rather heavy for what it is though. I have yet to see another similar.
