Place of Origin



Bronze and Calamander


In good condition for its age. Old European lock does not work. The front left lower corner has a chip on the lacquer near the bottom of the lid. The varnish is peeling in some places and there is a noticeable chip on the bottom of the box. The box appears to not close completely, due to the calamander shrinking from age, but the metal trim does shut close.
