A little Leprechaun ... Treasury box ...

What a great gift for a good person (Irish). I put her initial letters on front.

A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore.
They are usually depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes
and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
If captured by a human, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom.
Like other Irish fairies, leprechauns may be derived from the Tuatha Dé Danann.
Leprechaun-like creatures rarely appear in Irish mythology and only
became prominent in later folklore
