Fabulous thick bevelled glass jewellery box with ornate gilded ormolu frame and, unusually, the original silk cushion, all be it looking rather delightfully timeworn.
The legs are slightly bent meaning the box sits at a slightly jaunty angle. They are soft metal and could easily be straightened up, but I rather like it and have left the choice to you. There is small, shallow interior chip on the lower left hand side.
The closure clip and the hinge are firm and operate well.
The box measures 6cm by 6cm by 6 cm. This is just over 2.25"
