This writing box measures 10" x 6 3/4" x 4 1/2". The top and front of the box are decorated with intricate Mother-of-Pearl inlay. There is only minor loss to the MOP. Three of the straight strips on the lid and one end of the curves. There is a lock, but no key. There is minor damage to the veneer. The hinges are in good condition. The bottom of the box has a crack as well as the inside of the lid of the box. The inside of the box needs a new lining. There is some roughness above the lock where it appears someone tried to pry open the box without a key. This seems to be a common problem on these old boxes. A beautiful box in spite of the problems pointed out.
