The Toothpick case is elliptical in form and is made entirely of filigree work. The cover and base display unusual scroll work designs and the cover also displays a beautiful domed oval enamel of a Classical female figure in flowing robes. The enamel is surrounded by a scallopped frame. The interior of the sides has a silver lining engraved with the initials H L W B in script lettering. The interior of the cover is also inset with an oval frame containing its original mirror. The box is unmarked, but was almost certainly made in Birmingham circa 1790. A similar example is shown in " Silver Boxes", by Eric Delieb, Page 135.

Length: 3.9 inches, 9.75cm.
Width: 1.15 inches, 2.88cm.
