This lovely box could have been used as a card box or a cigarette box. It measures 4 3/8" x 3 1/4" x 1 1/2". As many of these early papier mache boxes, it has beautiful inlay of Mother-Of-Pearl. The gilding and MOP make a floral design. There are gilded lines around the edges of the box. There is wear to the gilding. Otherwise the box in in very good condition.
