There is a 12 pointed star on the underneath of the base. The crystal gives a reassuring high pitched chime when the lid clinks with the base. In immaculate vintage condition, absolutely no chips, scratches, nibbles, cracks, flea bites or clouding of the crystal.A smaller size that would accommodate a small powder puff and powder beautifully, might alternatively be used for other cosmetic toiletry storage. Items will always be packed with exceptional care, usually double boxed, using clean repurposed card and paper as well as strong paper packaging tape - all of which can be recycled. Fragile items will also be wrapped carefully in good quality brand new bubble wrap. I will always cover the parcel for loss or damage in transit if the worst should happen. Thank you so much for visiting. This item is made of chunky clear crystal. The style is art deco and hollywood regency.
