Amber is fossilized resin, which in Europe is found primarily around the Baltic Sea. Amber from that region is approximately 40 million years old. Works of art in amber were crafted in Danzig (now Gdansk), along the Baltic Sea. This game box was probably a gift from King Frederick William I of Prussia to Prince William IV and Princess Anne of England on the occasion of their wedding in 1734.
