Hi Shelley no I don't think it ever had chocolates in my mum used to put little trinkets in it, it was really well made I remember in the early 40's

Has anyone ever seen a round wooden box which was a sort of yellow in colour and on the top was a painted hunting scene with the hounds horses and their red coated riders, this was a lovely box and I remembered from when I was a young girl but after my mother died I never found it in house. Just wondered if anyone had seen a similar sort of box.
