The map etching has an iridescent quality that changes colors and contrast when viewed from different angles. The black lacquered box comes in a black draw string gift bag to protect the superb finish. Black felt lines the top and bottom surfaces of the interior of the box and four felt feet protect the bottom of the box from scratches. The exterior of the box measures 7 1/2 inches (19 cm) wide, 5 1/2 inches (14 cm) deep, 2 inches (5 cm) tall, and weighs 14.1 ounces (400 grams). This Black Lacquered Nautical Old World Map Box is perfect for jewelry and watches, or simply for adorning your office or bedroom.
