Wonderful Antique Victorian papier mache jewelry or work box. The box measures 7" X 5" X 2", and weighs approximately 14 oz. The box is made from highly lacquered black papier mache. The top of the box is inlaid with beautiful Abalone, and the outside corners have lovely hand painted detailing. The lid of the box has become detached, but both the hinges and the pieces of papier mache that cover the inside hinges are present. All of the parts to the lock are present, but there is no key. A wonderful Antique Victorian papier mache box that would be well worth restoring if you wanted it to be used, but is excellent for decorative display just as it is.
