First impressions on opening, this is a lovely box. Inside looks well made and I like the different compartments. Outside looks nice but don't expect walnut veneer as I think it's just a coating. My main disappointment is that the pattern on the top of my box was not put on evenly. One side is a cm wider than the other and it's not even straight. There's a small white spot on top which looks like's it's lacquered over as it won't wipe off. There's also a couple of tiny blobs lacquered in on the sides. There is a tiny chip out of a bottom corner. Apart from the pattern, these faults are not really noticeable unless you look, but it does show a lack of quality control. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase. The box does look really nice and my jewellery looks lovely displayed inside.
