It is wrapped in a black material and held with heavy duty brass hardware which has acquired a wonderful patina from age.The box has thick leather carrying handles on the side which are still in tact. The box is lined with a nice textile finish and has linen pieces holding the box opened. It measures 29 inches long by 16 inches tall by 17 1/2 inches back to front.
It is missing the small piece of the lock that hangs from the top. There are some wrinkling to the material and a couple small tares.
