This antique tea set is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

There are natural fire marks to the surface of the teapot and some minor dings to the ball feet of the cream jug, in keeping with age; these do not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the set.
