All coffee pots are in good used vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs, except for Broadway/Piccadilly which has a fine crack as detailed above, and is priced accordingly. As these pieces are some 50 years old, most do have fine age-related crazing. As with all vintage ceramics, these are not suitable for microwave or dishwasher and should be gently handwashed in mild detergent.

Please see my separate listing for a selection of later MQ1 Fine Shape coffee pots with flat lids, developed in 1966 as an adaption of this earlier lid shape, link here - https://etsy.me/36yEaeD
