This box is veneered in beautiful tiger oak wood with decorative brass hinges and handle on the bottom drawer. The top opens to the right and to the left to reveal the original dividers for letter, cards, etc.. It comes with a key which locks the 2 doors, the doors are not 100% parallel when closed but they do close in and the key is working.I took a picture from the box closed so you can see it yourself as well. There is one small piece of wood missing under the left door, again one of the picture is showing it. I will not accept return for reasons like scratch or light paint crack, or for any imperfection, most of my items are. Of a vintage or antique age and will have a certain amount of wear commensurate with age and usage. In my opinion it makes the item looking even better.
