Can anyone help me identify this old wooden hand carved box?

13 years ago

I have an old box that I received from my grandparents. I have no idea of its original origins. It has no makers mark and appears to be very old. It was containing old papyrus like papers. The box measures about 20" wide by 15" deep by 5" tall.

It has old hinges. The nails appear to be hand made.

Here is some of the old folded papyrus inside.

Here is one of the designs from the carving at the top. A dragon of some kind.

I thought maybe Thailand or China based on the dragon, but I don't really know how or where to start looking. Any ideas?
