of shaped oval form, the lid, sides and base inlaid with panels of red, honey, moss and banded grey agates within reeded gold cloisons, the lid chased with two-colour gold acanthus, gold-lining
It appears that, as with some Neuber boxes, the agates are laid on painted card to enhance the colour. Intriguingly the paint has crizzled in some places leaving glimpses of the writing on the card below.
