This tin is shaped like a book. The lid opens like the front cover of a book. The background of the book is a very worn brown with gold lines and simulated binding lines. The page edges were once possibly gold. All of the finish is very worn. There are two pink roses on the front and a boy carry sheaths of wheat on the back. These appear to be decals and possibly added at a later date. I see no marks. The tin measures 8 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 1 3/4". The lid fits very tightly. Great box with character.
