There is a 0.5 x 4 cm section above the foot which has been replaced. The circular base is made from a separate piece of wood. There are some typical minor losses to the silver inlays on the rim. Apart from a 3.5 cm age crack around the base, as well as some occasional minor chips and dents, especially to the underside, the overall condition is quite good. The actual patina is somewhat deeper and warmer compared to the catalogue photo.
