Summary Excellent

Assessor Christina

Notes This box is in excellent condition. The colors are very bright. There is a tiny bit of wear on the top wear the top flap folds open and shut; There is a stain on the bottom flap of the box as well; The shaving stick is still in the box and it is wrapped in it;s original tissue paper and the instruction manual is inside so it looks to have never been used.
