    Condition Report*:

    Some scuffing and age-related cracking to case, cantilever element appears to be missing, very light scuffing and fleabiting to glass vessels, pushing and warping to two lids, with surface scratches commensurate with age, polishing, and use, lot is without key; Lot presents very well.
