This is a nicely shaped dresser box measuring 5 1/2" x 3" x 1 1/4". The box is faux tortoiseshell. The inside is lined in beige velvet (somewhat stained). The bottom is stamped HALEX Made in England. I understand that these were made circa 1930. The back of the box has a raised bubble surface. Not sure if this was an intentional design or a result of heat. It does not take away from the appeal of the box. The hinge is good and the box lid fits tightly.
