Composed of three panels.

Comments:
The case is made in a diamond shape, with various, what look like silk making implements, and a woven silk view of the Crystal Palace.
There is no weavers name, although as the view of the Crystal Palace is identical to the image on Stevens' postcard sc272 - Crystal Palace, there is no doubt this case was made by Stevens.
