This lovely little repousse box is approx. 1 1/2" square and a little over 1/2" deep, having a slightly domed top. It was meant to hold either patches or pills. This little box is brass with a gold wash. The top has a center cartouche with a scrolled script monogram, I believe the monogram to be, an E and definitely a Y. Surrounding the cartouche is raised acanthus leafing and C-scrolling, very ornate and defined. There is a slanted insert for easy extraction of whatever you choose to place in the box. The insert may be removed. Please email us with any questions. Thanks for looking!
