If you're looking for a set that is a pristine silver, this stand will not polish up to a vibrant silver. The patina adds to this set's magical factor. (We're "team patina" as its like a personal fingerprint on a vintage item that's taken years to create). The red Bakelite accent on the stand is in perfect condition. The picks are in very good condition. The Bakelite tips are pristine and show no sign of age, cracking, etc. The picks tips have a minimal amount of tarnish. In short, this antique Bakelite picks set is in very good condition and inline with a set that's 80 years old and the stemmed stand has a good amount of age and patina that will not polish up. Truly a gorgeous and rare set.
