Indian enamel silver small box

During our trip to India last month, en-route to Jodhpur, we stopped by at a rest area with a small shop. Here in this shop, I bought a small enamel silver box.

The colour of the enamel is blue and beautiful. The sides box also has enamel on them.

I think age-wise, this box probably was made on the 20th century. It is probably vintage? 40-50 years old?

It has 925 mark at the bottom of the box.

As for purpose, I am not sure what is the function of this box. Probably a pill box? A snuffed box? A parfum box? Or probably it is just a decorative box with no intended purpose.

What is the function of this box?

It is very much a treasured box that reminds me of my trip to India. Especially to Rajasthan.
