Box stands are 3 curving legs, shaped like dolphins, richly gilded.
The colour scheme of the box is gold and white - white ground with delicate gold patterns and wider gilded borders to rims.
In the center of the lid is a round reserve, encircled with raised 'jeweled' or beaded gold orbs, encircling a soft green-grey ground with a pate sur pate miniature portrait of a woman seen in profile.
Porcelain and decoration are of very good quality.
