Condition.

Excellent condition with light surface marks that are consistent with genuine age, use & polishing. I believe that the centre lid cartouche may have had an existing monogram polished out at some time as there is a slight dip in the flatness when you look across the top, however the silver still feels nice & thick when you feel both sides.
