More Information

Inkwell: Good. A couple of small dents to the base. The cap is slightly misshapen, and does not sit flush, overlapping to the left of the inkwell. Base is in good order, showing minor scratching and wear only. Glass liner is in good order. General scratching and wear to the exterior consistent with use.

Vestas: Both are in good order. Covers open easily and close flush with a snap. Both examples have a moderate amount of denting to their covers, concentrated at the sides. Decoration on both examples is crisp, though the smaller example shows a bit more wear. Hallmarks to both examples are legible.
