**In very good condition; evidently never used. Some oxidation to the silverplate elements, especially in the recesses of the medallions. Hallmarked (on the underside of the handle) with: 1) the sterling lion passant; 2) the London leopard's head; 3) the date letter "C" for 1977; 4) the Elizabeth II bust Silver Jubilee mark; and 5) the maker's mark "RFE"; the mounts and wheels part-marked. Marks excellent. The case is in reasonably good condition, though the tip of the handle has punched a hole through the lid, and the padded interior top is detached (but present).
