I think this little box was intended to lay on a table rather than be carried--it measures 2 & 1/2" by 15/16"--quite "thick". It is made of a very hard dark green composition perhaps imitative of shagreen. It is lined with a marine plastic and displays a mythical painting en grisaille under glass bordered in 12 karat gold of a slightly pink hue and engraved. There is an age crack in the painting, and I think it is from the late 18th or very ealry 19th century.
