This piece had a really nice patina but I polished it to see the even more beautiful engravings. The top is smooth with a pineapple shaped "knob". The rich red velvet lining is in nice shape with minimal signs of wear around the rim. It measures 5" tall (with knob) x 4 3/4" long x 4" wide and weighs 1lb 6oz. This is sure to become one of your more special pieces!
