I don't know why I expected this to be bigger. The photo clearly shows it holding small jewelry. Must be a perspective thing. Anyway, now that it's arrived and I've seen it, it's perfect for it's intended purpose. Big enough to hold your jewelry from the day plus a few more small pieces, and takes up hardly any room on your vanity. Very pretty/classy matte gold color and seems to be solid and well made. Well worth the price. Would be a great gift idea on its own, or maybe with a piece of jewelry or another coordinating umbra piece.
