Jug: hinge to cover is loose. Base is uneven so jug wobbles. Some small indentations, some old marks and general wear. 2 enamel plaques with some tiny nicks to edges, one with restoration on the edge, one with some cracks.
Box: wear, old marks and abrasions and rubbing to all pewter surfaces - used. The wood interior is quite clean. Wear to base and edges.
