Bentwood box with a rectangular base and short, straight sides. The box is made from bending a steamed plank of wood into shape, then kerfing the corners. The rim is straight along the long sides and bows upward along the short sides. The rim is also lined with opercula shells. The exteriors of all four sides are painted with formline animal designs in black pigment. One corner is held together with wooden pins.
