There is some overall, occasional and minor flaking to the green enamel. One edge of the ribbon forming the knob of the cover has been cleanly broken and glued back. There are two approximate 1/4-inch chips to the flange of the box and another larger one that is firing-related and has been glazed over. Otherwise in good condition.
