Overall very good. There are a few small indentations from use / wear. There is surface wear, see photos. I believe this was used, however it was also well taken care of. Please note that this was hand wrought, there is uneveness in the lip of the bowl from being hand made - in other words, do not expect the perfection of something that was machine made. It is charming and of course it passed quality control at the very chic Kalo Workshop. Please view the photos in the enlarged view.
This was hand hammered, you can see the beat marks. Very heavy and a worthy keepsake.
*This was from the same estate as the child's cup. It was presented at a different time, but to the same child recipient. This Widner family was residing in Brooklyn, NY at the time. I assume these items were purchased at the short lived Kalo store in New York City.
