There is wear to the painted surfaces from age and use. There is a chip on the underside of the lip of the lid, but no other chips to the wood. There are a couple of chips to the paint along both the top and bottom edges. There is a thin crack that runs from the mouth to about ½ way down the side of the box. There are no breaks. It looks good for the age.
An antique box with folk art painting that gives a richness to the home décor.
