This beautiful piece of workmanship appears to be in good condition and all original. It can be hung on the wall to hold correspondence or pictures; your choice. I am a lover of lacquerware, tartanware and Mauchline ware and starting to downsize. These pieces are so elegant and look even better in the evening with the light highlighting the gold. It is 13 1/4 inches long by 3 inches wide. Would make the perfect gift for either sex.
