Normal patina to bronze as shown in photos. Carved Finials also have the patina from age. 3 of the 4 Finials, also move or have play side to, side, as well as rotate like they are meant to. The fourth one is fine, having no play side to side.
The tall teapot does have a shallow dent in the side, as I tried to show in a photo. It is very minor because it is shallow. I did not try to clean anything up as you can see. I will leave that up, to the next owner.
Most people like antiques in their original condition with original patina. Some pieces are stamped on the base as as shown.
The maker did not stamp every piece, because it is a set. There are 13 pieces in this set. I counted all separate pieces, which include lids as well. I did not count one teapot with hinges on the lid as 2 pieces.
So as I mentioned one shallow dent, 3 finials with play side to side, and patina from age. No other issues, if you want to call these things issues. 3 tea or coffee pots measure about 8.5 inches, 9 inches, and 5 inches to top of finial, or handle (highest points).The rest of pieces are various sizes. This is a rare find indeed. I looked all over the internet and found no others. There is a decorative monogram on the sides of the set as shown. Please view the photos, and check out my other auctions for many other unusual items as well.
