Some visible rubbing & minor marks to the silver plate finish,

 in particular to the shell bowl itself

but with good crisp relief decoration & no bumps, splits or restoration,

just used condition withe base metal showing through to the sifter.

(but it displays beautifully as it is.)

(please see pics.)

A slight bend at the shoulder, with surface marks to the shank through use,

but all relatively minor & mentioned purely for accuracy only.

(Please see all pics.)

Otherwise it is still good throughout,

is a scarce, unusual example ~ ready to use

&

it displays absolutely beautifully.

(Please see all photographs provided, that show the exact item condition.)

 

A superb, unusual & decorative sifter,

that would grace any collection

or 

period table.
