I have a box that has a sticker on the bottom that says Disabled Soldiers Products New Zealand. It has very similar carvings and what I believe is Abalone shell circles, like this mailbox. I am having trouble finding information online about these boxes and thought I could possibly get some answers here. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
