Stands about 4" tall. Not exactly sure what it is meant for. Other listings have it as an ashtray. However, there aren't any divots to rest a cigarette. Is stamped in black letters Made In Japan. Other than crazing (no chips or cracks), it is in very nice vintage condition. Quite a unique find.I realize the shipping could be first class, but am sending Priority with insurance. If you would rather take a chance for $3 first class shipping(no insurance), let me know. BUT if there are any issues when it arrives due to P.O. mishap, I am not responsible. Please ask if you have any questions before bidding/buying. No refunds/returns. Purchase is as-is. Thanks for checking out my stuff. I do combine shipping for same day purchases. Feedback will be gladly given once mine received. In the title I put Trinket Box, should be trinket dish. Sorry for any inconvenience.
