Nice antique mahogany box. Slight scratching to the lid surface, and a few dents and 'dings. Green baize lining good. Comes with original working key.
Nice waxy patina. A few minor surface scratches and very minor 'dings'. Minor brown stain to edge of two crenellations on one rook.
Minor chip to crenellation on Queen. Hairline cracks on six pawn bases, queen, king, rook, bishop and knight. Further small chip to queen base. Baizes good.
