**Scattered tiny nicks, pinpoint dings and scuffs, with a network of fine scratches on the plateau of the tray, all consistent with age and occasional use, but no dents, breaks or repairs. The insulators on the teapot have shrunk and cracked a bit and, while intact and secure, there is a "wobble" in the handle. Each piece stamped, on the underside, "Sterling Mexico".
