The leather has been recently polished.

Condition

This box is in extremely good condition for its 100 plus years of age. It has sound structure and only minor light age-related wear to the leather.

There are two arc-shaped indentations on the lid of the box. These are from where something heavy has been left on the lid for a period of time. The marks are not hugely noticeable and the leather isn't scuffed in these areas.

The majority of the interior silk linings are still neatly fitted and in good clean condition. They have a few small light stains which are not overly obvious. There is an old small ink spot to the silk which lines the front wall of the lid

The hinges and clasp are still in excellent working order.
