The are many of what appears to be French towns and cities with addresses on the bottom. The gold color is much brighter in person. The tin measures 4'' x 3-1/8'' x 7/8''. It is in excellent condition. There are two wear spots on the lid as pictured. There are some small spots on the inside bottom that could probably be cleaned.
