-In very good condition for its age. The odd spot of wear on the felt, the odd tarnish mark and one larger one on the gold coloured hardware, a little ageing to the edge of the handle. The edges of the sticker label inside the bag  are a little grubby around from the adhesive.The mirror has a fair bit of age but still shows a very clear reflection. The bag does have a very slight musty smell from storage. These are all very minor flaws but please take a good look at the photos.
