The exterior is adorned with a 24 karat gold and sterling silver Damascene landscape and so this would be an ideal golden or silver wedding anniversary gift for her. The historical fact sheet we include with this purchase documents the elaborate process of creating a Damascene collectible using 24 karat gold and sterling silver. Damascene is considered a symbol of good fortune. The decorations are finely crafted oriental scenes which depict the Ichinomiya, or supreme Shinto shrine of Suruga Province, Mount Fuji can be seen in the background. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The brass was coated at the point of manufacture with a layer of transparent enamel so this item will retain its beauty and never require cleaning. The inner lid of the compact is signed Clover. The bevelled mirror gives a good clear reflection. The base of this adorable music box is decorated with a golden textured finish. 

This compact is suitable for use with loose face powder.

The musical powder box measures 9 cm x 5.7 cm and weighs 147.3 grams.
