Thermoplastic case:
"Amazon on horseback being attacked by a tiger"
Berg 1-138, by John Smith, without labels or patent mark.
Based on the sculpture by Adolphe Kiss.

The case is missing a rail and the borders are chipped.
The photo is upside down in the case, probably because of the missing rail.

Backdrop of flowery wallpaper and a bouquet of flowers on the table.
