I have a box 31"l x 17"w x 20"h with nged

Customer Question

I have a box 31"l x 17"w x 20"h with hinged lid, covered in brass plate with hammered designs, intended use was for fireplace wood. This was made in Russia and was a wedding present to my great-grandparents in 1873.
I do not know for certain, but I believe the box came from Russian Archduke Alexis, since my great-great grandfather was part of the American welcoming committee that greeted the Archduke in New York in 1871.Any idea of its value?Thank you
