This is a handmade, beautiful shoe-shine box. It's in very good condition. The expected paint loss and wear befitting a well-used item. It was clearly cleaned-up before that auction- so no residue of any kind.
There is a crack in the wood as seen in the third photo that is visible from the top, runs around the lip and can be felt below the top. It does not go all the way across- and does not affect the structure/sturdiness at all. This is a strong, chunky piece.
I've packed all sorts of things in this over the years- from mail to my 'packing station' equipment. It has always been admired by everyone who sees it.
Approx. 12.5" long, 10.75" tall, 7" wide. The red shoe part is about 11" long.
This will be well packed :) so the shipping is not inexpensive. But I will definitely refund shipping if it turns out to be less than what I've quoted.
Thank you for looking- it's a beaut!
