Condition
Antique sardine box in fairly good condition, but it is over a century old, and no longer perfect. There are a few small nibbles in the top edge of the box, and some rough spots on the edge of the base. Also a crack down the lower part of one inside corner - this doesn't go all the way through - and a crack in the inside of the top edge. The gilding round the edges of the lid and underplate is badly rubbed, as you can see, also on the fish finial. There are some scratches/rubbing of the colours of the flowers and leaves. Please see photographs.
