It measures 19.9cm (7 13/16") long, 15.2cm (6") wide and 2.9cm (1 1/8") high.
Condition is very good with no damage or restoration and minimal handling wear to either enamels or gilding. There have been a couple of kiln dust blows taking small spots of green enamel with them and and a few areas of sparsely scattered kiln dust dots here and there.
