Years ago I picked up this nice-looking varnished wood box with dove-tailed joints at an estate sale. I have no key to the box, but t are hooks on two corners and what appears to be a brass lock and handle.
Inside this vintage box are two levels of items. The upper level has smaller compartments with small glassware, a water testing booklet, some circular filters and an old invoice.
The bottom level has larger glassware. The four tallest look like the markings are etched in the glass -70mm and 100mm on three of them, the fourth is etched with 100 lines, every ten labeled10, 20, 30, 40, 50. The top says CC 60 degrees F. Three of the other bottles have glass stoppers.
Thanks for looking!

Oops! I guess they're "box joints", not dovetail joints. The box measures 18 1/2 x 12 x 5 1/8 inches. Also, t's a scratch on the front of the box that doesn't show in the other pictures very well. So 's another pic.Another thing you might be interested in, the small book "A Simple Method of Water Analysis" inside the box was printed in 1908 in London. The author is John C. Thresh, M.D. (Vic.), D.Sc. (Lond.), D.P.H. (Camb.).
