This epergne is in amazing antique condition--especially for for its age and use. Has expected signs of age and use such as light surface scratches, possible spots of tarnish and polish residue. No plating loss anywhere that I can see. Still extremely shiny and must have been very well taken care of. Please use the zoom feature to see more details as they are part of the description. No obvious damage.
