Hexagonal box constructed from white cardboard. The outside of the box has a coating on it, lighter than the inside of the box, with gold fleur-de-lis ("flower of the lily" in French) designs covering the sides and bottom. The pattern of gold fleur-de-lis varies; sections of white on the gold designs vary from petal to petal of the three petal symbol. On three sides, the fleur-de-lis point up, on the other three they point down. The coated cardboard is lustrous, but the gold designs are matte (they do not appear hand painted). A crease runs across the bottom and up opposite sides of the box. This box was folded (mostly likely by machine) to create the hexagonal shape. Two flaps are glued down on the interior sides of the box. The box has a clear, shallow lid made from plastic. A 2" x 1.25" off-white adhesive label is attached to the center of the plastic lid. In the middle of the label, "csb" is printed in bold, medium-blue letters inside of an oval of the same color. It is not known what the acronym CSB stands for, or what this box contained. "Made in U.S.A." is stamped (indented) in the bottom of the box.
