The small holes around rim are for the leather handles. Only one section of the leather is still present. Some expected wear to imbricated zigzag design. A few dents in interior bottom the holes don't go all the way through. I've had it for a while and I'm ready to share it with someone else.
A note: We're all healthy here and are isolated and washing hands regularly. If you're worried just leave your packages in a garage or porch area for a few days before opening. Most of the items we sell come from our personal collection gathered over the years from our travels, from Native powwows and craft stores, antique shops, auctions and estate sales. Now that our kids are in college and beyond, we are letting some items go so others can enjoy them. Then I'll send you a combined invoice.Sorry for the expense, but I've had items lost overseas when mailing first class and don't want to take the risk of losing items. I pack carefully and try to reuse materials to save on environmental impact. I often double-box items with smaller gift boxes collected from various thrift stores. I reuse all that I receive and hope you will make use of the ones that come in your packages.
