The lot displays general scratches, marks and wear commensurate with the age and use. Heavy tarnishing and would benefit from a clean and polish. Wobbles. Dent to side from handle compression. Further minor dints. Removal of an engraving to the main body - silver feels thin in this area. The hallmarks are clear and legible.
