Used but in very good antique condition. Signs of light use in keeping with age. The hinged lid closes perfectly with no leaks. The cup slides on and off of the flask well and stays firmly in place. Some light scratches. The leather has shrank a little over the years and has a few light scuffs but is still attached soundly. There is one very slight flat spot on the cap and one on the cup both of which only notice on very close inspection. Some wear to gilded interior. Hallmarks are slightly rubbed. Please study all pictures as they form part of the description.
