The first class workmanship is evident, most especially the inlaid nacre lid and the mother of pearl and abalone are beautiful and iridescent. The whole item was lacquered during the manufacturing process and so it will never tarnish or need to be cleaned. The inner case contains a good mirror which gives a clear and accurate reflection. The inner lid and base are decorated with vertical linear designs. The ‘tear drop’ catch holds the inner lid neatly in place L:6.5 x W:6.5cm Weight:90.8 grams
