I wanted to give more people the chance to participate, but its time for the answer... Royster has practically won this from his first post, anyway
Royster, not meaning to raise your pride too much, but your guess was PURE AWESOME!
I have a bulletin board with pins, where I hang all my jewels, and the item is in the middle of it all. It doesn't exactly have diffrent compartments, but I have a bag for the pins and most necklaces gathered at the other side. There is a vintage-looking pin, with a big, blue, shiny hat and silver paint, which is quite close to the other item you describe. This (or one of the 1-2 decorative objects of the board) could also be the antique toy you described. Under the board I have cardboard boxes filled with books and magazines. You win!
Sups, you had a very good try too. You mostly desctibed the surroundings of the board. At the left of the board there is a library, in addition to the books under it, and there is a tiny decorative item that looks like a cane basket with two canes. It's near the main door, so that explains the air. It's possible I also had the balcony door open around that time. Dinner table and chair are visible from there, although no rattan. Well done
