Important Added Info: There are the remnants of a paper snipe on the back of the bottom of the still, but the snipe is long gone. Also note that this still measures 7" x 9", but it does not appear to be trimmed.

Condition: good to very good. There is a stain in the bottom of March's jacket and faint emulsion scuffs throughout the still (but they are really only noticeable when the still is tilted to the light).
