Wood Book With Drawer

I picked this up at a second hand antique store in upstate NY. The bottom of the drawer says “FLEMISH / 725 / ..ART..” Perhaps it is tourist art? I’m not sure what the title “BANDS” refers to, or why there is a well executed monk on the front cover. The foreedge has a nice curve to it, and the burned and incised decoration covers the back cover as well. Looks like it might hold cigarettes? It is an odd little thing.

    Ran across this picture and thought wow! I am planning on carving an wood box used for an urn. This has inspired me, do you have any more pictures? Thanks Dan
