Metal, dressing table powder box or jewel casket. Measures approximately 6"wide by 4.5" tall.
Sometimes the wire sticks when the lid is lifted. Has some dents but still presents well. I think it would be a great place to store a prized piece of jewelry. All my items are from estate sales and i have no way of knowing if the owners smoked, drank, had pets or whatever. I try to adjust the photos to show the actual color.
I can't be responsible for differences in your monitor and mine. Look closely and ask questions if you have concerns. This item is made of metal and swiss music movement. The style is art nouveau and victorian.
