Dovetail construction with decorative, brass pieces on the top, and gold tone lid hinges. The box measures 8 inches wide by 3&1/4 tall, by 4 inches deep. 2 small wood handles were attached on the sided, but one of them is missing now. On the bottom is the original, sticker price tag of 39 cents, from, "J.C. Penny Co., and Nation-Wide Institution". The box is in good condition. It shoes some wear to the finish, but is just to precious to not pass on to someone who will appreciate it. According to the child like, hand written inscription inside the lid, this was given to Katherine Tatum, by Fannie, in 1939.
