Lovely old papier mache box, in the Oriental or Orientalist theme, with black background , gold gilt scenes; and the faces and hands in ivory color with nice features, some age wear on the faces but still mostly present, better than average for these old boxes. This one is a card box for your playing cards, although it can have many other uses, and is in good used condition with minor dings, no significant damage and no repairs. It is not hinged as original. It measures 4 & 1/2" by 7 & 1/4" and is 1 & 3/4" deep. The gold gilt still quite bright, a lovely box.
