We have carefully examined the piece and we did not see any chips or losses. However, since these pieces are very delicate and has parts that extend outwards and are thin, there may be a spot that we missed, but we could not find such a spot despite the fact that we used a 10X loop to view the piece. The piece is soiled and would benefit from a good cleaning, but we leave that to the discretion of the new owner. Please see photos for additional condition information.
