Metal: this may be an assembled set since eleven of the rests are stamped and the other rest that would fit into the twelfth recess spot would presumably also be stamped; two of the rests do not fit into the original fitted box; typical wear and dulling to patina; some nicks to rims and other abrasions

Baccarat: eight appear to be in generally good, undamaged condition; one has a barely perceptible tiny "fleabite-size" nick to a corner; another has a small nick to one of its corner but also has a larger shallow sliver of glass missing from an adjacent corner; one has a tiny nick to its rim edge; one has a large unsightly chip loss to one if its corners
