Measurements: 16cm (6.25in) x 8cm (3.1in) x 6cm (2.5in)

Silver pouch flap applied with the gilt brass Napoleonic eagle badge derived from the capture of Eagle of the 45e Regiment d’Infanterie de Ligne by Sergant Ewart, 2nd (North British Dragoons at the Battle of Waterloo, adapted as the hinged lid to a table top box applied with the pouch slings at each end of a unmarked silver plated base.
