Thecondition is used and fairly good for its age.
The ChristeningCup or Mug hasNo Large Dents, No Splits, No Cracks and No Holes that I can find, the cup stands straight,the definition and decoration is very crisp, the cup holds liquid without leaking, the internal gilding is a good colour with some minimal wear, the silver hallmark is still clearly legible although as the cup or mug is a used antique it does have some small shallow dents in its body and handle along with some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use, it has the patina of age that is to be expected and a gentle clean would enhance it greatly. Personally I think that this antique christening cup or mug can still be used today and that it would makea superb gift or addition to any cabinet collection, Ialso think that it has a delightful look about it considering thatit's almost 90 years old.
Please Note that any dark shadows in the images on this cup are just reflections that could not be avoided during photography.
