A great many ferns on the very pretty paper covering this antique case that probably held a scent bottle at one time. The interior of the bottom unit and uppermost interior surface of the top unit are covered in green velvet to cushion the bottle inside. All the exterior surfaces are papered, and the piece has a delicate, feminine look. It was made in Scotland circa 1870, measures about 3-1/2 inches in height, and is in very excellent condition, with no splits or cracks. The paper covering shows a few minor signs of wear commensurate with age.
