Vintage Cremation Urn, 1920s Etched Initials, Hammered Metal, 5 inches tall

This small metal urn was packed in a trunk with 1920s items. It is sealed shut, so I am assuming that it is a cremation urn. But it feels and sounds empty when you tap on it and shake it around, but I don't know for sure. It only weighs about 10 ounces, it would weigh more than that if there were ashes in it.
It is just under 5 inches tall and 3 x 3 square.
It is a hammered metal that appears to be either silver or nickel over brass.
Fancy design etched on the front with the initials 'GD' I don't know anything about the history of the urn.
No maker's mark.

It is in very good condition but has dark aging allover. There are little dots and blemishes on the metal, the aging/color is uneven. We polished a 2 inch area on the bottom and it came up a shiny silver.
