This boldly shaped box is in absolutely beautiful estate condition with NO breaks, NO repairs, NO replacements, and NO restorations. It shows light, age appropriate wear, commensurate with normal use. The backside shows the correctly soldered joinery. The brass shows a nice shine under an old lacquer finish.
