Spectacular vintage condition!! There is evidence one of the posts have been bent and straightened again - minor, noted for accuracy. Shows mild wear commensurate with age, no dings or chips, will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.
