2-1/2 opening where lid sits, approx. 5 across bottom of teapot that is scalloped. There are signs of age/use/wear. This is very old porcelain and not made like porcelain today, a few imperfections, not perfectly round or straight in areas.
Some color/enamel fade/loss in areas. The teapots lid is missing the top handle area as well as having a fracture that extends from the bottom approx.
3/4 the way around to other side. The teapot itself has no chips or cracks.There is a small imperfection on the handle that has a very tiny extra bit of porcelain pointing off but it is just the way it was made. The saucers are made with a small lip around the edge. There are three one with a few chips under that edge, one with a hair line fracture approx. 1/2 which can only be seen from the back, so two are in good shape. As mentioned before the edges around the plates are not perfect and some areas may look like a chip but its either color loss or just the way the porcelain was made.
The chips around the edges are somewhat hidden because of that as well. The teacups; one has a old discolored hair line on the bottom approx. 1/4 as well as two chips around the top rim. One has a line that is visible but cannot feel it approx.
There are two in good condition. There is some pitting and brown spots from age in the porcelain.A beautiful vintage/antique porcelain Nippon set.
