Condition Report

The enamel to the reverse show general wear and a few small patches of loss. The blue enamel hoops to the terminals are very worn, particularly to the panel links, where the enamel is almost entirely lacking. The rose-cut diamonds are uneven, but all present and correct. The yellow gold mount is unmarked and untested, there is general wear and a few small splits and some of the hoop terminals (particularly those to the panel links) are slightly squashed. The links are not solid or hollow, probably lac filled. Strung on later white polyester cord. Gross weight 193gm.
