~ Condition ~
The caddy has a few very light marks from age and use.
The veneer to the lid has a couple of small splits, but they do not affect the overall beauty of the piece.

The key for the lock is missing.
The feet are of a metal imitating gilt brass and have been glued on to the base in recent years, but could easily be removed without damage to the satinwood.
