This teapot is in great vintage condition for it's age and use. Show some signs of age such as light surface scratches and marks from use, possible tarnish. The lid sits slightly up near the front, but not dented or misshaped. No dents or dings or plating loss. The inside is clean (the faint swirls in the picture are just polish residue). Super shiny and beautiful. No obvious damage that I can see.
