The box originally had padded felt inside where the old chaps medals were kept (this could be used for various purposes) As he never got the medals, the inside was stripped and cleaned. This is a handmade piece and all of the detail on the front is inlaid into the alabaster. Would be a super addition to any collection and I can guarantee that this will be one of a kind!Measurements: 145 x 110 x 37mm. Condition report: this has some small nibbles to the corners, which could have happened whilst it was being made. Personally I believe that this item is in a very good to excellent state.
