The trinket box is in good condition for its age there are a few minor dings to the box, the base rim is also a little out of shape . the lid closes with a nice fit although when open a little play to hinge.(Please see photos) but otherwise in good condition for its 95 years of age, that being said this doesn't detract at all from its rare beauty, just mentioned for accuracy.
All Antique silver items will show some signs of wear, which only adds to the history of the object.
