The wooden box has a place where a name plate presumably once was. It was likely a desktop cigarette box. The inside top has a large chip missing, but it does not affect the look of the box from the outside. The back left corner has a small separation and there is a nick out of one of the sides (See pics.) The hinge on the box is clean, straight and tight. It moves easily but is not loose, just as it should be.
This is an extremely rare and beautiful piece of breweriana and would make a great addition to your collection!
