This box had much damage including missing mother of peal inlay, missing veneers, a perished surface finish, old cloth under the base, ripped and missing internal paper, a broken lock and  hinges and a missing internal shelf. The surface finish was removed and veneers replaced.  The missing parts of the mother of pearl inlay were cut, fitted into the design and polished. The old lining was removed and new paper fitted. The old cloth under the base was taken off and replaced with a quality baize. An internal shelf was made and covered in a fine quality leather. A new lock was fitted along with two hinges. The edges of the box were ebonised and then the whole box was polished and waxed.
