The silver cases are in good condition with no visible dents or losses, or major cracks. All cases open and close smoothly. No visible sign of restoration when inspected under UV light. Light wear throughout. Light oxidation and discoloration to metal components as expected. The enamel box is in fair condition and has several inner cracks throughout, most noticeably to the underside; however, please note that since these are inner cracks, the exterior surface is smooth. Dust collected along the interior. There is an area with cracks, possibly restored, to the left top of the lid; to the left of the area, there is a minute loss to red enamel.
