The ornamentation to the body incorporates an engraved and chased decorated head/tail, in addition to four applied feet.

The compact is fitted with a rounded thumbpiece to the edge of the anterior cover.

This antique compact opens to reveal the original integrated mirror and gilded compartment.

By virtue of its size this versatile box could be used for a multitude of functions.
