Made in 1894 and obviously given as a present to somebody by one E.I.M. in 1895. It is monogrammed to the front with the initials M and O ( perhaps the original donee ).

Weight : 102 g.
Condition : apart from a very small dent to the front ( to the right of the monogram ) it is in a fine antique condition.When pricing this item we have taken into account the tiny dent! I have been informed that a dent of this nature could easily be rectified!
