6.75" x 6.75" x 3.5 in size, and has a brass fitted lock latch in the front. The top of the box shows a very thin area of the top edge of the center medallion (see listing photo close-up) where the wood dried unevenly along the grain, which appears as a crack but is in no way compromising the integrity of the construction and this is not uncommon in sandalwood carved items.As you can see in the photo it's not very noticeable, but I mention it anyway. The natural sandalwood fragrance is sublime, and there's a wonderful balance to the proportions of this well-crafted box.
