The mounts silver and the handle cut-steel. The lid with its original mirror, and lined with red silk. The interior with a removable box containing small compartments, lined with red silk. The carcass lined with wall paper and a painting of a man, woman and child within a landscape scene inset in reverse in the bottom reflecting the image in the mirror. The ratchet replaced. Possibly Antwerp, or Dutch, third quarter of the 17th century.
