It's quite rare to fine these with they're upholstery so complete. They tended to get very well used, often as foot stools by an open fire. It did take a lot of work to get this one this clean, the colours came out surprisingly bright and clear under the decades of dust and soot! I have also added new brass upholstery pins as the originals had all but gone and the ones that were left were crumbling.There's some moth holes on the felt stuck to the bottom, but none on the actual carpet covering. The lid chain is missing a loop so it's not currently attached to the body of the box, but the lid does stay open and upright without it however.
