Overall good condition. The basket and flowers test 18K yellow gold, the base and green enamel grass does not. The sugilite base shows surface-reaching fractures, a small chip to the underside and a small chip to one corner. Several enameled flowers show chipping and losses to enamel commensurate with age.
