    Masking box mystery

    Hi all, thanks in advance for any information you might be able to tell me about this. At its widest it can open to about 7" X 6.5". There are no markings on it, so I have no idea what company might have made it but I'm relatively sure it's darkroom equipment.

    Thanks again!
