Each piece has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.
There is some subtle wear to the high points of a few knife terminals, in keeping with age; this does not affect their integrity.
Full hallmarks struck to the reverse surface of each handle are all very clear; the hallmarks to the knife handles have wear in keeping with age but remain legible.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine and impressive antique canteen.
