These teapots are in good antique condition especially for their age and use. Show some typical signs of use such as light surface scratches, light wear as well as the usual marks/ tiny dings inherent to silver soldered items. The insides are clean with the larger teapot having light staining inside that should come out with a soak. No obvious damage that I can see.
