I have just added a lovely little box to my collection and it has a mysterious inscription on the underside.

It 'appears' to be a classic 'Dutch Tobacco Box' which I would have thought was circa 1780.

But, most unusually, it has two panels on the underside containing inscriptions that look to be in Arabic. One seems to contain a date of '1262' which if my maths is correct, would be 1846 Gregorian?

Can anyone translate the panels on the underside and solve this mystery for me please?

I am extremely grateful for any help.

Thanks
