CONDITION: 6- (Fine): The mug has a moderate overall tarnish and spots of corrosion along base and on the interior. There is a medium dent in one side as well, which only helps one imagine the devil-may-care merriment that once accompanied the usage of this piece.

GUARANTEE: As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
