It is polychrome painted with a stylized landscape with palm trees and a young lady walking through it. The lid is heavy in solid pewter with a thumb rest knob. Some engravings are still visible.

Condition is good considering the age. There are two fine hairlines. The pewter foot rim has minor breaks. Size: 9 1/4" height x 4 1/4" diameter
