ALL ARE GUARANTEED TO BE IN EXCESS OF 100 YEARS OLD. Because our boxes are GENUINE ANTIQUES and we furnish every one with a Certificate of Authenticity. Please bear in mind our boxes are antique so any marks and/or minor repairs are commensurate with age and are part of the life and history of any antique.

Un-usable and un-saleable states so we refurbish as sympathetically as possible thereby keeping the integrity of the box.
