I have just taken delivery of another 100 beautiful french typecases. There is an assortment of sizes all of them are slightly squarer and compact compared to the standard UK size.
These are some of the nicest I have had. Authentic and full of character with a naturally aged look. Plenty of wear in-line with their age and use. There is no damage but they have proved irresistible to woodworm over the years and the majority have some wood worm exit holes.
Although the wood worm will be long gone I have brushed the wood with Cuprinol wood worm killer as a precaution and given the wood a light coat of clear beeswax to enhance the patina.
There is generally a bit of dust in the compartments (brushes out with a dry paint brush no problem) and a few inky marks to the wood as you would expect and the occasional pen marks.
Perfect for displaying odds and ends, collections, hanging on the wall or up-cycling and customising - They are great for children to store bits and bobs in.
