The lid and base have a border engraved with the Greek key design. This design is also called meander or meandros. It is constructed from a continuous line & shaped into a motif which is then repeated. AKA the Greek fret design although this & the name Greek key are modern names. The ‘meander’ is said to represent the twisting & turning of the Meander River in Asia Minor. The meander can also be described as a linear form of labyrinth. The ‘meander’ was considered one of the most important symbols in Greece. It symbolized infinity, unity, eternal love & friendship.

The lid also has highly stylized engravings. The original finger ring and chain are attached. The interior is very sound and original too - pockets for calling cards... a pencil holder and the original writing surface which has 'Sunningdale ...spencer.....' All catches and hinges work perfectly. This item has been used and it has multiple signs of use on the lid, interior and base. Measures almost 4" long x 2 3/4" and weighs 99.4 grams.
