This shell box measures 4" in diameter and 2 3/4" tall. The top lifts off to reveal the bright pink paper lining. The top has a mirror and two rows of small shells. The bottom of the cardboard box is covered in aqua paper. There is a label on the bottom stating "From the Isle of Wight." There are a few shells missing. It is really in remarkable condition for its 100+ year age. I have recently purchased a collection of shell items.
