This most attractive and elegant Coalport gilded teapot and cover are generally in good condition, the gilding is bright and crisp with only very little wear -  mainly on the top portion of the handle. There is a fault in that the handle on the top portion has sustained a chip and a crack from the chip right round the handle. The chip has been restored with a filler which is visible, this damage is shown in the three pictures below. Even with this damage the handle is still very firm. Apart from this fault, this is a very fine Coalport example.
