It has a top and bottom sides consisting of shells of varying types with the border being lovely iridescent identical small shells.
The design on the top is really nicely done and the silk covered pincushion is part of the design.

A really interesting shell covered pincushion box.
Condition: Minor paper wear and a bit of a crease on one edge. Actually lovely condition for the age.
