This set appears to be in good antique condition.. Has some typical signs of age and use such as light surface scratches, possible tiny dings and tarnish. The insides have some light staining from use. There is an area on the coffee pot where a raised area looks to have been bumped (see pic). Price is taking in account for the bump. No other obvious damage.
