Answer
Hi, Raul.

I don't have any experience with this piece e nor could I find any recent sales. However, I can make educated guesses.

I believe the box was probably made in the early part of the 20th century. Since it appears to be made of silver plate, it has little value based solely on silver content. However, it would have value to a collector of such pieces. I believe the value would be around $100. However, there currently is a box for sale on eBay with an asking price of $210. You might follow that item to see if it sells.
