A delightful old trinket box made from some sort of composite. It looks like pressed paper mache to me, and feels like wood. The box is generally well used and two of the lid corners are rather scuffed. Its a beautiful little box. It would be greatly improved with some polish but I like to leave any restoration to the new owners. This is a very old box and the pictures form an important part of the description. Dont hesitate to ask questions.
