Hello this is a Vintage Wooden Letterpress Printers Tray stripped of year of dust and dirt, finished with a coat from the oil of British Rapeseed to enhance and preserve the dark coloured wood. The lining is filled with a map-like pattern wonderfully created by the stains, marks and wooden discolourations from the printer it had collected through the years. All of the 147 box components equally measuring 4cm x 3cm are in good condition in general with minimal signs of wear (chips) due to its age but nothing that affects usage.
