Condition: This set is in very good to excellent Estate condition reflecting only minor signs of normal wear. Specific minor flaws include two faint dings on the coffee pot, one inside cartouche on one side and the other near the handle. The teapot has a faint dent on rounded part of handle and another on lower part of handle. The waste has a faint dent on shoulder at the end of the embossed design of pattern. These flaws are all considered minor and would have occurred during normal handling. Also note that the lid to the sugar bowl is missing, however, it looks fine as shown. No other noted flaws.
