No, glass samples. It was stuffed with a variety of rolled-plate (textured glass, like what they used for the Carnival series of trays and handkerchief vases) in various thicknesses and other samples (coloured, plain, heat-resistant, etc.) so that the salesman could show prospective clients. I have quite a few from Pilkingtons and dozens of different samples (some of which may be Chance). Some time in the future Denis and I will be cataloguing them.

Funnily enough I'm pretty sure this is the box I saw being sold on eBay.

It looked to be a very nice example and, yes, I also wanted it! But the price went way beyond what I was prepared to pay for it. Now, if it had all the samples included...  ;)
