This is made of rosewood and intricately inlaid with beautiful mother-of-pearl flowers and leaves. The stem and vines are nickel plated bronze and the four suited cards in the center are also nickel plated bronze. All the edges of this box are also inlaid with mother-of-pearl diamonds with the key excursion and nameplate also being mother-of-pearl. This box opens to reveal four separate rosewood boxes all with diamond mother-of-pearl inlay and bronze nickel plated card suits. The center is where one would put ones cards and there is a separate piece of wood to cover them. The ivory interior of this box is ivory paint. There are some really old poker chips in each of the 4 boxes which we believe to be made from bone with a very nice ivory color. There are 10 small rectangular chips, 10 circular chips and 60 large rectangular chips. We guesstimate this box to be from approximately circa 1880 and in very good condition. The finish is all original with normal nicks, bangs and scratches here and there, but nothing too serious. The top cover is slightly warped due to age. The small box inside which has the diamond on it has a little breakage to the interior of the box. The breakage I speak of is the very thin wood on the interior which should hold the cover tight. Although this thin wood is missing the cover still goes on nicely. The dimensions of this item are approximately: 11″ length, 6″ width, and 2 1/2 height (box closed).
