The back of the turtle serves as a lid, the small turtle on top is the knob of the lid. The small turtle can be detached when slided to the back.
The inside is lacquered in a darker color red brown. The turtle box is in very good condition.
In Japan the turtle is a symbol of longevity, endurance, persistence, and the continuation of life.
