CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): Piece has some light to moderate abrasions on base and a handsome tarnish. there are a couple of TINY stress cracks in the bead around the bottom of the kerosene reservoir, most likely formed during manufacture. They exist ONLY in the bead, and most are very difficult to even see with a magnifying glass. I have filled the reservoir with water and allowed it to sit for hours, and there was no leakage. The crack is VISUAL (mostly with a magnifying glass) ONLY and NOT STRUCTURAL. Not that anyone would be filling this up with kerosene and using it, but they could if they needed to.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
