I'm proud of this ring box because it was an unlikely discovery in a local antique shop (when I lived in California). Most of my collection has been purchased online so it was exciting to find this one in person. Also, unlike my other ring boxes with their floral and feminine motifs, this one is strikingly masculine with its carriage-style car on the lid. Because of the patina, it's difficult to make out that there is a driver behind the wheel. This box could have been intended for cufflinks. It measures approximately 2" x 2" x 1.75".
