Overall in very good condition. The hand-wrought copper surfaces retain their original patina and show minimal surface wear, including some occasional light surface scratches, some gentle rubbing and transparent surface spotting and surface soiling to the top, and surface soiling and a few traces of light surface oxidation to the cushion base consistent with age and gentle use. The upturned rim of the top tray with a few minor and shallow surface indentations. A very attractive example of this rare design.
