The piece has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.
The cast, chased and applied decoration is very sharp.
Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body are all clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver, however the second portion of the maker’s mark is partially struck due to the rounded surface. Please see image 10 for reference.
