This charming little box is in very good condition. The tortoiseshell and silver pique decoration are in good order. There is a tiny chip to the edge of the horn base (see photo). There is wear to the Old Sheffield Plate with copper showing. The copper interior has some verdigree. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
