This is a first quality piece! The overall condition of the teapot is excellent. There is a single tiny flat flake to the top rim and one flower petal on the lid displays loss and an area where a petal was reglued. The handle functions as it should and it firmly stands upright with no loose areas to the swivel points. The porcelain portion of the handle is firmly intact as well with no cracks or loose areas either.
The tripod is in top shape with standard wear to the metal surface, with minor plating loss on some of the upper tips. The porcelain insert was cracked and reglued at come point in its life and the burner appears to have all components and be in fully functioning condition with a few splits to the metal under the cap. These are tough to find complete!
