The Tantalus box measures 13.5 inches wide and is exact in size to the one in the movie.  It is entirely handmade and great care has been taken to try to replicate the artwork on the original box.

 

Much of the artwork is hand painted.  Specialty locking hinges hold the box open in the upright position for viewing.  The cushions are  covered in velvet, sewn to create the tufted look and then and secured with brass brads.  The floor platform is also covered in velvet and recessed into the box bottom.  All of the hardware on the box is brass.
