Ensemble of four copper/mixed metal boxes, dating late 19th/early 20th century- the square ones were meant to hold ink pads for Chinese seals and the round one is usually described as being an opium box although I have no idea if it really is or not. Other than needing a cleaning are in good condition and in my opinion the last one on the right is worth the price of the rest combined as it has a small inkstone inset in the lid. Please view last enlargement for scale and dimensions.
