Do the pieces with 2 knobs come all the way out ? And do they have a flat surface ?

I agree with Howie. It’s hard to tell how small it is in the photo.

Are the black sections rounded? Looks to me like some poker chips would fit in there nicely.

Can you show a photo of the piece with the movable pieces (drawers or trays) open?

I would say a jewlery box. Looks to me the picture is taken on a counter top so it is not very big of course more infowould be good.

I just uploaded some new photos of the “the chest”. It is approx 3 foot tall and about 18 inches wide. The interior part has rolls that are like ring holders but bigger.
