CONDITION: It is in fine condition considering its age and usage. It has all the hallmarks of a great hand made antique piece that has nice patina and denting that such a piece should have to certify its antiquity. A piece such as this is for sure to have denting which attests to its constant usage and function.

GENERAL CONDITION OF ANTIQUE METALS:

Some denting of antique metals generally attest to the authenticity of the antiquity of metals and is considered acceptable by collector and dealer standards. This is not to say that all metals that have dents are antique. Other than denting, there are other things to look for such as how it is assembled or joined or welded. Look for quality impressed maker's marks or other factory marks such as year dates and numbers which accompany some antique metals. Oxidization is also acceptable and is considered as "patina" by the purists.
