Appears To Be Made From A Soft Wood Of The Same Type As Pine Possibly.

The Box In Good Order, Although The Key Is Missing It Closes Okay. The Pictures Illustrate The Normal Wear From Use. It's Still A Practical Item To Use Or Simply Admire....................Commences At A Bargain 99p Start Price!
