Condition:

This beautiful Caughley tea bowl, coffee can and saucer is in excellent condition with no, cracks, repairs or restoration. The only extremely minor imperfection are some small areas where the gilding on the inner decoration of the tea bowl has had a little wear, but this is certainly minor. Also on the rim of the saucer is a graze with the gilding removed (as shown in the two pictures below). There may appear to be a tiny chip to the rim of the raised foot of the saucer, this is a manufacturing fault, as the tiny chip is glazed and is insignificant.
