Very good. Lovely old antique patina! Piece shows general wear associated with use: swirling, surface scratching, and metal staining. The entire piece is without nicks or dings along any of the edges. No deep scratches or bite marks. Well shaped. Heavy in the hand. Clear and distinct hallmarks. Quality made piece.
