The box was exactly what I expected based upon the description. The "hidden" hinges are a nice addition. I am going to add a cloth lining that will not only protect the mementos, but show them off when the box is open.
Absolutely beautiful! E. E. Cummingsis my mom's favorite poet, so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to get it for her. Great size; it was a little dusty on the inside when I got it but that's fine. I can't wait to give it to her!
