Yea or nay? Small wooden box likely dating around the latter half of the 1800s. It looks as it has been repurposed sometime in its long life, as originally the bottom of the upper section would have had a hole - members of a masonic/fraternal organization would cast votes by placing black or white marbles into the box, where they would drop through the hole into the drawer to be counted at the end of voting. While it no longer has a hole to be used for that purpose (unless you make one), it offers plenty of potential uses in your space with a cool history, to boot. In generally good condition with some rustic wear throughout that suits it well.
