Hi Delia, thank you for your quick response. The box is approximately 2 3 1/2” tall x 3 3/4” long x 2” wide when closed. When fully open it’s 5 1/2” wide
I got it at a large auction of Russian military memorabilia, but I don’t think it’s Russian.

Thanks, Jennifer.
The marks are quite hard to read but they look French, which is consistent. Regrettably, the market for miniature silver furniture is quite soft at the moment. I've priced this in line with what other small silver tables are bringing at auction, with a modest improvement because of the craftsmanship and detailing of this example.
Otherwise, you're all set.
