Every box edge is inlaid with light and dark wood strips. There is no key. Very good condition consistent with age and use. No missing pieces in the marquetry. When closed the box lid comes up a tad on the front left as shown. A couple of veneer splits in the diamonds which do not detract. 2 corner wood blocks are missing on the inside base. Which has not affected the sturdiness of the box. There is one common wood split across the box bottom. The box has been French polished. Original lining was missing. The box has been relined with. Dark green felt which is not glued, so it can easily be replaced by. A bit of hide glue from the original lining remains in the base as shown. Outside dimensions: 12″ long x 8″ wide x 4-3/4 high.
