I don't know much about this antique other than it's in very good condition. No rust but the lid sticks a little when you step on the turtle's head. I've opted to sell this to an antique collector who knows more about antiques than I do. Please e-mail me for more information or additional pictures. I would be happy to supply all the information you need to make an educated bid on this great collectible.The winning bidder has an option of adding insurance to shipping. I HAVE REVISED THIS AUCTION TO INCLUDE MORE PICTURES. In my original description I said t was no rust. T is small amounts of rust around the leg/feet area and around the perimeter of the body. Nothing major. Email me with questions.
