Entire case is lined in red velvet material. The mahogany exterior has acquired a pleasing, dark toned patina overall. Top lid features a plain, unmarked brass medallion inlaid into the center of the lid. Three of four brass end caps on the lid or missing but would be easy to reconstruct based on the remaining example.
