Some damage to external box and two bottles/jars that I cannot get the stoppers off. Most damage to box at rear, cracks to veneer and loss of edging. Very presentable but NOT perfect. Bottles themselves all in good condition with internal stoppers, however i cannot get on internal stopper out or unscrew one of the small circular bottles. I have let them alone and they have some earlier contents inside.
