To one side is a matchstriker opening to a vesta case and through the back section there is space for a pencil. Original gilt interior. Weight 194 cms, 6.2 troy ounces. 9 x 7 cms. Height 1.5 cm. Stamped inside with Russian silver marks. Maker Karl Faberge.
This Russian silver box is in very good, crisp condition with no damage or restoration. No wear to the internal gilding. All original. With clear silver marks inside the base. Fully authentic. The niello decoration is in good condition, there are a couple of very negligible tiny dinks.
