The surfaces have worn smooth from use, and in a couple of places, small holes have appeared where the silver has worn through at the extremity. It is the finest example of Hmong silver work that we have encountered to date. The box is in fine condition, remains fully functional with original hinges, and the lid closes neatly. The patina of the silver is very lovely.
