INNER CASE : Good condition with some loss to the gilding on the back, bow and pendant, but no dents or other damage. The hinge is fine, though the case doesn’t snap shut. Nice high dome bull’s eye crystal in excellent condition.

OUTER CASE : In good condition with even wear to the gilding, but no dents. The hinge and catch are fine and the case snaps shut nicely. The catch release button is worn down.
