The dish or tray hasNo Dents, No Holes, No Splits, No Cracks and No Repairs that I can find, the dish stands straight, the decoration and definition is crisp, the the silver hallmarks are still clearlylegible although as this trinket dish or pin tray is a used antique the makers mark is partially rubbed or worn but still legible and it has some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use, it has the patinaof age thatis to be expected and a gentle clean would not go amiss.Personally I think that this antique trinket dish or pin tray can still be used today and that it would make a fabulous addition to any cabinet collection, I also think that it looks absolutely fantastic considering that it's over 110 years old.
