Additional Notes & Condition Report

Appears to be in generally good condition; the patina is mottled rust/brown and dark green; patina has a dull appearance; some flake losses to the iridescence on the glass jewels, however, all of the glass elements appear to be in good condition; the interior colorless glass inkwell insert appears to be a later replacement; the hinge appears to open and close with ease and sits properly on the base when closed
