This is from the late art deco machine age era of Modernism. Top has two gold handles that reveal slots for playing cards underneath their resting place. I have seen a few on the internet that have sold claiming the case to be bakelite, which I do not believe to be true as this feels slightly lighter in weight. I think this is early plastic as the label on the green felt bottom likely confirms.
