This is a very charming embossed brown leather collar box. The embossed design on the lid is typical Arts & Craft; It has a decorative celtic look to the embossed pattern and is a lovely color. It is not a heavy, thick leather box, but a lighter weight, morocco leather and it has a good quality appearance.
I believe the box would have originally been purchased in a fancy goods department of a British store. It looks lovely on display. It dates from early 20th century and on the base of the interior is embossed "Made in England.
It is all in very good structural condition, and the leather is sound; just a little surface signs of age which is part of its patina.
It measures 6 inches (15.25cm) in diameter x 3.25 inches (8.5cm) high.
