It is in perfect condition. The only flaw is that the tray has a chip out of one corner. When I first opened it, it smelled like fresh plastic/vinyl on the inside. It has the key and the original tag. The lock works perfectly.
I love these things. I have a turquoise pair of the large suitcases from this line too.

    I have the entire 4pc set of this line. Similar in color with original keys. Granny only bought the best, kept it in excellent shape inside and out, and never threw anything away. They stack beautifully at the end of a sofa for a great end table and conversation piece.
