Rather old looking tea pot (I believe) made by Hall. Estate sale purchase of mine. Age is unknown to me and I'm not sure what kind of rather heavy weight breakable material this item is made from. This item shows heavy sign of gold color paint wear - most of the heavy wear is located on the top half of the handle and all around the spout area and w the lid makes contact with the pot. (see pictures ). T is a chip mark towards the end of the spout (looks-feels more like a "slice" then a deep running chip. T is some staining on the inside of the pot & several dark spots that could have been made by a spoon or something else - I can feel some roughness to these marks. The blue color paint and the gold color paint on the sides are in pretty good condition. Old item with lots of sign of wear yet just to nice not to list at the sme time. I will pack with care and ship Priority Mail. Heavy Item. Please add $ 10.90 for shipping and handling. Insurance is extra upon request. Payment is due within 10 days of auction ending date.
