This box has four feet and a black base. It is 9" x 3" x 7". The velvet and satin fabrics are worn on the exterior and interior of this box as is usual with a box of this vintage. The satin has some fraying on the inside of the base. The mirror has some loss of silvering on the backing. This is a nice example of a Victorian sewing box.
