MEASUREMENTS: Height: 3" - Largest Circumference (at silver band):s 2 1/2" - Weight: 4 ounces

I believe that this box is true lignum vitae - 19th century English. The silver banding is actually a twist style locking mechanism - unmarked silver, but tested and guaranteed

The color is deep and rich after years of being handled. Plus, I have oiled the inside and outside of the box several times - as soon as I saw appearance of a thin hairline crack. Originally the interior of the box had no finish which is probably why the hairline appeared.
