The set has little wear and is in remarkably good shape considering its age of almost 100 years with no chips or cracks or major scratches, with the exception of one cup that has a crack on the bottom but is still useable and a very minor paint chip that makes a rough edge on the top of the coffee spout.. The flowers are decoration are in great shape. They gold trim looks good shape.The set look really lovely. The other pieces are great, no chips or cracks but please examine the photos carefully.
The pot measures about 9″ high and just over 4″ in diameter.
The cups measure 2.25″ high and just under 2.5″ wide not including the handles.
The saucers measure 4.5″ in diameter.
