Good antique condition. Some internal tarnishing in keeping with use and age. Silver in good order - decoration nice and crisp with no dents/damage. Some wear on the inner lip under the cover caused by opening and closing the lid. Slight loss of definition to the border decoration at the front. Hallmarks clear. Hinge good and lid closes securely.
