An excellent antique 18th century Tzedakah coin / charity box, made of solid bronze panels, standing on dowel feet, decorated with Cherubs and a lion on top. The lion is made to turn aside to reveal/conceal the coin slot. On the front is an oval engine turned medallion with looks like it was silver plated at one point. There is writing in ink on the bottom which appears to read “to/from Ahuva”. 
Measures approx 6" x 4" x 2"
