Lovely vintage personal jewelry box, fine wood with high quality brass hardware and trims on the corners with engravings, and on the top three medallions we think are pale white/green jade, but could be soapstone, hard to tell when we can't get to the edges, inside the box red brocade with inserts for 6 rings and a center section for other jewelry. Clasp in good working condition. Back of box has original metal maker label and says Shanghai China. This beautiful box measures 3" tall, is 9 and 3/4" long and 4" front to back. In very good condition, very little wear on the exterior. There is a slight aroma on the inside, maybe incense, not sure, that will leave after being aired out over some time., very typical of this type of item from China. Fabulous box, not antique but vintage in age and lovely patina. There are holes in the clasp where a small lock can be inserted.
