This attractive box was made in the late 19th C by an unknown Staffordshire pottery. It is about 8-1/2" long and 3-1/4" wide. It is in very good condition. There are no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. There are 5 shallow nicks to the top of the interior which are not visible when the cover is on.
The base of the box is impressed "IVORY" and the number 16 is printed in blue.
