This shell box measures 4" in diameter and 2 3/4" tall. The top lifts off to reveal the aqua paper lining. The top has a large fan shell and several small shells. One shell has St. Halo' written on the it. The bottom of the cardboard box is covered in faux wood grain paper. 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.
