Object Condition

This antique English silver goblet is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition; the piece is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire. The bright cut engraved decoration is all very crisp and the applied bead decoration is sharp; it can be determined this piece has seen little to no use. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the goblet are very clear.
