The original paint colors are difficult to discern because of the darkened and grungy varnish, but our best guess is black (ground), cream, and orange. The design is freehand painted within incised lines (including compass-delineated central motifs). One 2 1/2 section of bottom molding missing, otherwise the box is in fine condition with original tin hinges.
