This box would have either held spices or small porcelain divided dishes. It is hard for me to tell from this angle.

It is a Chinese piece, early 20th century. I will add a photo of the condiment trays that would be in one of these carriers.

This box whether spice box or tray caddy has a value of $35.00.
