The tea pot is in good condition. However, the lid needs to be put back on the bottom section. It has a tad bit of over-spray around the hinge area which may be some type of lubricant.The hinge is connected to the lid but it looks as if it has simply come loose from where it was attached to the bottom section. Other than this the pot is in great condition. The Oneida Silver tea pot with lid not attached weighs approximately 2.2 pounds. It measures approximately 10.25 in length from back of handle to top of spout. The pot stands approximately 10.5 tall. It is approximately 4.75 in girth. Both have Oneida USA on the bottom.
Want to see more items in our store? Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible with the garment laying flat. Explanation of Bust Measurement - the bust measurement is measuring across the chest of a flat garment from armpit to armpit and then double that measurement. Sometimes we enhance or edit our pictures for clarity and sharpness.
Items that look dirty - some items simply look dirty. We want to assure our customers that we attempt to clean off all dirt and debris that we can see. However, in the past, we have tried too hard and ended up removing a valuable patina the piece had earned over the years. We do our best to clean but we do not scrub - unless for something like a price tag on a ceramic dish.
We clean our inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Unless it is noted in the listing, we do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look. If there is a date of manufacturing listed - including year, time period, or century in which it was produced - many times it is an approximate only based on several factors and we in no way mean to mislead or misrepresent these beautiful treasures.
As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. Just to help for peace of mind it is often good to remember that vintage wear and rub marks are virtually on anything pre-owned to a little or big extent.We try to faithfully point out concerns so that you have no "0" surprises when your treasure arrives. Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I can explain. Hence, sometimes we can bump your package up to priority because it costs practically the same.
It all depends on the postal service and destination. We do not promise this but we simply want you to know our store better. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction. If you have a problem with your order please contact me.Please do not list a negative comment before I get the opportunity to help with the problem. Also, please be aware if this is a used pre-owned item. The condition is according to my experience and requirements if it were myself purchasing the item. However, someone else may have more experience and a better eye for things that should have stood out. I never quit learning and I want to take care of my customers. We warrantee and represent that the goods are as described in the above listing. Please note that unless it is otherwise noted preowned, vintage, and antique items could have few or many wear and rub marks that are simply characteristic of their age and use.
