Condition: This lovely set is in very good to excellent Estate condition reflecting only minor signs of wear with no major damage or repairs. There is one dent on the back side (opposite the monogram) of the sugar bowl (see photo) in an area free of decoration that could be removed/repaired by a jeweler or silversmith. The tray has very faint no-harm surface scratches in the center from normal wear - far less than normally expected on a tray that was used to hold a coffee/tea set that was certainly used. No other noted flaws.
Please note that if you already have this tea set and only need the Sterling Silver tray, we would consider selling the tray separately from the set. Please inquire if this would be of interest to you.
