    Anyone here named Griffin?

    I bought this jewelry box at a yard sale for its contents. When I polished it I noticed the name "Griffin" etched into the top. If anyone here has that name and wants the box, let me know. I don't want anything for it. And, I think it is silver plated. I removed the red felt from the bottom looking for any marks but didn't find any.

    Very cool find, even has I think variation of the English royal crest. I tried to look it up and found it's made in Hong Kong along with sales listings on Etsy, E-Bay, and elsewhere.

    I looked it up too and found it wasn't valuable. I thought for sure that there would be a taker on one of the websites it is posted on.
