The gold is applied with wolf tooth. The faces of the people in the scene have so much feeling to them. This box is gold gilt edged design with a beautiful curled feather design. The box measures side to side 7 1/8" side to side x 5.25" back to front x 2 1/8 tall. Open it up & it reveals a red lacquer interior.
