Condition Report

Spectacular vintage condition. Shows mild wear commensurate with age, will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste. There are two very small rubbs to the glaze - see pics, very minor. The chain is original but the clasp looks more modern to I assume it has been replaced at some point. Has a handcrafted look to it - amazing vintage necklace.
