This lovely sugar and creamer set is made of pressed glass and silver toned metal, and just needs a bit of TLC to get their shine back.
Pressed glass, also known as Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG), was manufactured from approximately 1850 to around 1910. Made in cast iron molds, this was less expensive to produce than blown glass, and was marketed as an economic alternative to hand-cut crystal, which was the rage at the time. (Thanks to Collector's Weekly for the background information)

Not sure of metal content, has the patina of burnished pewter, although we have seen sterling darken like this, as well.
No cracks or chips. There is a "drip line" under the rim of the sugar bowl: we've included images for you to inspect. Pricing lower, accordingly.
Price is for the pair.
