Can anyone help with this little box? I cannot figure out the purpose. When you open the top the inside rises and the little door can open it has a slot in the bottom. There is also a little piece that lifts as well

Reminds me of a cigarette dispenser box
Jewelry box. The slots are for rings. my grandfather had one similar covered in faux leather yours is a nicer one. Others I've seen had a piece of brass on the lid that had been ngraved with initials & one I assumed as a family crest. See if rhe slotted ring tray lifts out. Might be some paper money still tucked under it.

I don’t think it lifts out. How does it hold rings
