Another from my own lifelong collections. My best guess is that this would have been for either larger cigar service, or perhaps it was a vanity or pencil box, desk box. It's nearly 8" long, almost 3" wide and 1 1/4" high when closed. I do not find any loss nor damage, so the beauty of the chocolate to cognac coloration tortoise shell is just all a thrill to behold. All fittings are sterling silver and bear English hallmarks for your review.
As noted, very good to excellent condition for age and type. Smooth to the fingertip, no cracks, no restorations. The shell is beautiful, satin-like, and elegant with a touch of wax or almond oil every now and then. Full measurements noted on photos. All fittings are silver, all working perfectly well, and no warp.
