This neat pocket-sized "box" opens and expands to reveal a => concertina–folding peep show complete with => three hand-colored cut-out interior panels and two uncut panels at front and back.
Five celebratory harvest scenes are depicted —  a group of six adults and two horses moving a haycart,  a waitress holding a stein and four male customers in a pub setting,  a man asking a woman to dance in a wooded scene with a group of people to the left and a two-man band to the right,  a couple dancing with wreaths and a couple walking, in a wooded scene incorporating sheaves and a garland, and  several couples dancing around a tree with a village in the background.
To see the full vista, a viewer looks though a hole in image of the first scene, which is attached to the front of the box, to see the other scenes arrayed "within" the final one attached to the inside back of the box. => All five etchings are meticulously hand-colored and complete. Box covered in marbled paper; moderately rubbed and only slightly soiled with use, outside plate gently age-toned. Folds strong and plates firmly attached; one spot, two pinpricks, and light pencilling on accordion-folded paper but not plates. => A dashing 3-D depiction of a 19th-century harvest celebration in a sweet small format.
