The lid has a background of dark blue enamel with ornate scroll work & vertical lines of brass. Set atop this a framed cartouche with the most enchanting design in red enamel set off by the gleaming brass. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The interior case has attractive gilding on the mirror bezel,powder well & all sides. The mirror is excellent & gives a clear reflection. The base is smooth gold tone & signed 'Lanchere FLAIR'.
