Condition

This antique three piece tea set is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition. There are some minor dings to the rim of the teapot and some surface blemishes in keeping with age. The interior of each piece has been cleaned and is ready for use. The bright cut decoration is very crisp. Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece and part hallmarks struck to the interior of the tea pot cover are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of Georgian silverware.
