Overall clear marks and engraving. Scratching and light bruising as expected. Coffee pot: there is a heart shaped silver join at lower handle, but the handle has not pushed through. Tea pot: lower handle join and spout are both pushed in. There is some unevenness at the joint of the base, indicating an earlier repair. The construction of the base of the coffee pot and teapot differ. Sugar urn finial is loose and cover bezel slightly out of round.
