There are intricate designs on four sides and the lid. There is a mysterious castle on the lid, two birds, three stars, a moon. Story-book boats (reminiscent of 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'), butterflies, more castles and would could be some Asian pagodas adorn the edges. There are an abundance of wonderful and unique Art Nouveau design motifs, scrolls and patterns all over it.
This is a rare find indeed. A true collector's item. Really, this box seems like something from another world. Very magical.
It appears to be brass plated over tin, or some kind of alloy. The box is lightweight, almost like a tin. The plating has come off in several places, particularly inside. There are four small round feet underneath. The box is in a condition appropriate for it's age.
The size is approx 4.5" x 1.6" x 3.1". This box will be sent to you from Berlin with a tracking number.
