The set is in very good overall condition. There is repair to one handle of the sugar, an a tiny repair to an old chip on the side of the spout. Spoon dings inside the rims and no other chips cracks or repairs. Light wear to the enamel decoration. Beautiful colorful hand painted tea wares in miniature are quite hard to find and very desirable. The pieces will make a fabulous addition to your collection of early hand painted earthenwares.
