This basket is in good condition for its age. Has typical signs of use such as surface scratches, flea bites, stubborn tarnish, polish residue and some possible wear to the plating (backs of feet and underside of handle). There is some stubborn tarnish, especially on the underside (see pics), but some of the areas where I used a lot of elbow grease, it started to come off. No dings or dents. Still very shiny.
