= Good condition considering the age and rarity. The head of the fork has a bit of wobble or play to it where the pewter meets the jade on the handle. The jade at the very end of the fork looks to have a (most likely natural) crack like i. It can be spotted when inspecting closely - but can't be felt from the outside surface.Dings or dents and all appears to be intact. View & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina, and/or wear. Most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both and, unless severe, aren't considered damaged. I will do my best to note anything glaring or distracting. Please utilize the scroll arrows beside the photos to allow yourself the opportunity to view them all.
