This little antique box is ivory with deeply carved Oriental scenes around the sides and on top. Inside is a smooth ivory child's thimble. It's about an American child's size 4 (12.5 mm diameter opening). The thimble has a crack on one side but is sturdy and stable.
The box is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or other damage and it screws together perfectly. It measures 1 1/4" high and has a nice old patina and ivory grain. It was carved in Canton for export to England in the early 19th century.
