Vintage Canadian wooden roll top cigarette box. Painted beaver, maple leaf and mountains/cabin.

Possibly made for the souvenir market. To the front is what looks to be a carved dog’s face, and there is an orange maple leaf painted on the tambour top, with a beaver and the initials WLI, which I’ve googled, and could possibly mean World Life Institute? 

When the roll top is pulled back, it reveals a colourful painted cabin in the mountains. The spring-loaded drawer to the front opens as the top rolls back.

There is a mock marquetry design strip around the edges of the box. This is printed/painted then varnished. In places it’s flaked completely off (see photos).
