This box measures 5" x 7 1/2" x 4 1/2". The original clasp and hinges are intact. The top is burned with an Art Nouveau Design with scrolling leaves. The front and both sides have similar design. The back has Gothic initials. I am not sure what they are but they could be MD. The inside and bottom are clean. There are two cigarette burns on the top. Otherwise this box is in excellent condition. It dates circa 1900.
