Interior lid sides have trims covered with leather like material in gray. Interior of lid is partially painted black as shown. Interior bottom has two wooden trims on sides as shown and probably had same type of trim on the other two sides which are not there anymore along with whatever else that covered the rest of interior.
Nice chrome covered mechanism for lock and hinges with another unknown mechanism on one side , bottom part of which is not there anymore. Two screw like perforations inside lid right in the area where plaque sits on top and probably from plaque mounting. Base ajar a bit at corners which should be easily restorable and is not even noticeable with box sitting, and could be covered with felt like material as it probably originally was.
