In overall good conserved condition. Generally with old marks, scuffs and scratches consistent with age and use. Minor rubbing and tarnishing to mounts.There seem to be some missing mounts: to the bottom front feet as there are some small holes and to the top left of the lower left mount. The bunch of flowers to the top of the right handside chute is slightly loose on one side as there is a missing pin however it remains securely attached to the carcass. The back feet show signs that they were reduced in size to fit to a particular space, and later restored to their original look. One key. Great quality.
