This French metal box was made in the 1930s to store some roasted chicory root, which is a coffee substitude particularly popular in Belgium and in France.
It is in good condition for its age, but looks a bit old, which is normal for a 1930s item which has been used a lot.
There are a few scratches here and there, and the lid is not attached to the box anymore (please see last photo). However, it could be repaired with a small piece of iron.
It measures 15 cm x 12.5 cm x 9 cm = 5.90" x 4.92" x 3.54"
It weighs 191 g (without protection and packaging).
