The interior is specially designed with a middle ring section, in addition to four divided storage sections. There is a mirror fitted within the lid. The box measures approximately 8" x 5" x 3". There is a small textile ribbon pull attached at the front of the lid as a means of opening and closing the box.

The sample submitted, described as a "Four-in-One Box", is a set of circular shaped trinket boxes nested one within the other. The boxes have two parts, a lower section and a detachable lid. The exterior lids are padded with foam. They are composed of a paperboard base covered internally and externally with 100% cotton woven fabric.
