Condition Report

Very good condition, light surface wear and tiny fleabite on silver surface. Only very very light surface scratches to the enamel. The hinge and clasp function well. Russian translation: "I gave you away, without saying a word, all anguish, all tenderness, all my love, Vera. Blue, gentle, passionate eyes. I can envision you as if you were really here."
