The lid has a scene of three Italian fish merchants trading their wares and is finely inlaid using many different woods.
The merchants are a lady at a table with a set of scales and two men with a box and a basket of fish.
The central scene is surrounded by flowers and eight inlaid playing cards.
The box is in good condition and has a baize covering underneath and a working lock and key. (Circa 1870)
