Condition is'Used' - Good Overall Condition. Full Condition Report: Very small nibble to surface that feels rough to touch, could be an inclusion as it's not a chip or scratch, I've photographed it though so you can see for yourself! The underside of base where the snapped Pontil is, just beside it is a rough patch of glass that you can see through the base, it's an inclusion from the manufacturing process but you can feel and see it.
Also in the same vain there's a sort of line within the bottom of the stem where it meets the base. I have illustrated this in the photos but if you would like more information or photographs please let me know and I'll be happy to help!
