This wood box measures 4 inches front to back, 7 inches side to side, and 1.5 inches top to bottom. It is made of Rosewood. Each side of the lid has a 1.25 inch strip of brass and in the center is either a brass duck or possibly a pheasant. There is a sticker on the bottom that reads "Marketed by Vaishali International India".
It came from my mother-in-laws estate in Beverly Hills. Family members are in agreement that they've seen it around since the late 1950s to early 1960s. It was kept in a dresser drawer and used for misc items such as jewelry etc. It's in great condition, but does need to be polished.
Buyer to pay USPS Priority Flat Rate delivery charges of $7.95. Delivery is from California.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
