This is an old trinket box looks like celluloid but I believe it is vegetable ivory. Vegetable ivory is a natural material from the palm or tagua nut and it does not have the acrid smell of plastic when it is rubbed briskly. The rectangular box is rather plain with rounded corners and hinge at the back. There is no lining on the inside and it doesn’t appear to have had any sort of liner that I can see. On the bottom of the box it reads; England.

The box measures about 2 ¼” by 4 3/8” by 1 3/16” high. It is in nice condition with minor scratch wear and a few faint stains on the lid. There are no cracks or splits.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
