the lip of the box, and a flaw inside the bottom (see pictures).
NOTE music notes on the lid - Designed to resemble a MUSICIAN’s
GENTLEMAN’s bureau. Called Victorian Fairing because they were made to

Originated in Germany and were mass produced by several companies -
many were English Staffordshire.

have more pictures for serious buyers.
