Good. The interior hinges have been replaced but have age (probably 19th century). Likewise, the brass clasp, although 18th century, has probably been added at a later date. There is a small loss to the veneer (2 cm) in a corner, and the usual surface scratches and nicks consistant with its age. Nice patina. An attractive thing.
