When the lid is removed from the top of the box, one side of the box drops down to show a shelf for the collar and a fitted circular compartment for the muff. The black box is lined with ivory paper, and gilded paper accents the circular opening for the muff.  The words “Mrs Perley, Topsfield” are written in pencil on the bottom of the box.
