It's in good condition overall, there is considerable ware to the silver plating exposing the base nickel silver in areas; extensive scratching especially to the end section and notable dents to the edging but as shown in the photos all adding to the aged charm and character of the piece.

Sheffield produced circa late 19th century it really is a unique historical find.
