This is a charming little box that could well have been used to store pills or other tiny items such as pins. Top and bottom are decorated with the tiniest beads in brown, deep green, pale blue and clear colours. The top and bottom screw together and once opened, reveal the interior which is apparently of horn. The beading is in good condition with one area of loss to the bottom of the box (see image), and the horn interior has a crack on each side. Despite this, this would be a sweet little box to collect or use. Diameter 2.4 ins (6cm). Weight 24 grams.
