Found - vintage wooden box with great type

I bought this box on Ebay yesterday. I'm quite excited to get it. I presume it's a cigar box (á la Deadwood, wouldn't you say?) The type is fabulous and, inside, the type is gold. I will steam the lid to flatten it out and it will hold lots of vintage treasures in no time.

I have a slightly similar box, below, that I love - even though the vintage type is upside down. It's quite ratty and old but I love the dovetailed corners and the colour of the wood. The little leather strap and nail hold it closed. It's stuffed to the gills with vintage postcards.
