Very Good/VG++ antique condition with minor -to- moderate (mostly minor) overall wear (small dings, dents, scuffs, scratches, stains, etc.) throughout from normal use over the years but NO breaks or repairs. Structurally rigid & strong, like-new! All finger-jointed corners are flush & tight. Looks to be complete & all original, with all interior tool-holding hardware, 3-section drawer (with wood knob), solid brass top handle and hollow barrel iron skeleton key (works with original lock like-new). Hinges are solid & strong. Original japanned brass maker's logo plate present at bottom-left corner of inner door (see 3rd pic). Beautiful, superbly rich patina to all material throughout. Extraordinary example of an increasingly hard to find tool box/wall cabinet!! See pics.
