Condition report:

This is a lovely antique piece; however, it does have visible age-related wear. The metal has both patina and some surface wear. The pen knife has some wear. There is a loss of the gold tone cooling directly underneath the prong set cabochon that is not noticeable during wear. This piece overall has a very handmade feel and is a beautiful little piece of history.

The Condition Report

An item must be 100 years old or older to be considered antique. This means many antiques may have age-related wear. We chalk it up to character and love it, but it is essential that we fully describe any wear, no matter how minor. Each piece is carefully inspected, tested, and fully described before it lands in the shop.
