This set is in good vintage condition. Has typical signs of use such as light surface scratches. There are what look to be water spots in areas, but this set appears to be lacquered (to ward off tarnish) and the lacquer is wearing off (easily removed with acetone). The insides have a bit of staining. No obvious damage.
This listing is for the Tea service only. Anything else in the photographs is for props. Some prop items are available in my store. If it isn't, and you are interested in purchasing, please convo me and I'll see if I have it available to list.
Most of my items are vintage which are used or aged so my items are sold "as is". Refunds or exchanges are not accepted unless I erroneously forgot to mention a major flaw. I buy items that I personally love from estate sales, auctions, flea markets, thrift stores, etc. I do my very best to list the condition of my items as well as show pictures. Please ask questions before purchasing. I hope you'll love your purchase as much as I did when I found it. I prepackage my items when listing so as to have the most accurate size and weight for shipping. If items sit for a period, they may get a tad more tarnish than in the pictures. I do my best to check again before shipping, but may not always be able to.
