The tea set haswith No Dents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holesand No Repairs that I canfind, all of the pieces stand straight, the decoration is very crisp, the lid opens and close perfectlywith ease, the silver hallmarks are still clearly legible although as this is a used antique miniature tea set it does have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with thepatina of age thatis to be expected and a gentle clean would enhance it greatly.Personally I think that this antique miniature tea set would make a superb additionto any dolls house or cabinet collection and that it looks absolutely fantastic considering that it's almost 110 yearsold.
