VERY GOOD. This antique Silver engraved vinaigrette pendant is in very good condition. Externally, she is in lovely condition, with both her repoussé details and engravings crisp. The Silver has a gorgeous luster with an admirable patina to compliment. There is one small dent on the top left corner at the back, but you can't see this when she is suspended around your neck. Inside, there are a few scratches and wear, commensurate with age, to the Gold. Her English hallmarks have remained crisp allowing us to accurately date her to 1872. She's definitely a good pick to add a touch of intrigue to your repertoire!
