This is such an exquisite case; one that can actually (and proudly) be used, as I have on special occasions, or kept in a place of honor in your etagere.
The case is an elongated hexagonal form; the hinged lid with three inlaid panels of lapis. It is further set with an inlaid malachite rectangle with pinched sides. The verso with stylized decoration of floral medallions within acanthus leaves, opening to a gilt interior.
Size: 3 inches long x 2 inches wide (7.6 x 5.1 cm)
Weight: 2.8 ounces (gross).
Condition: Good condition with some surface wear. Lid and closure secure.
