The lid is missing. Several chips around the spout lip. Several very minor small chips around the neck rim. There is a hairline from just above the handle (but does not reach the rim) which goes across the body on reverse side and stops at the spout, it then restarts on the other side of spout and extends approx. 4” into middle of body on obverse side. A tiny hairline across tip of lower handle terminal (not across handle). The enamels are worn and partially missing.
