OVERALL CONDITION I have removed some little bumps and there has been previous well executed work to most of the knees and some of the lower legs. To one only there is a possible repair to the handle top joint, partial outline within the bowl of the front leg joint from correcting an impression, three rim split repairs and an unusual fine solder line running from the top of the rear left leg joint back and up towards to rim (front boat, second image). Despite the above they are actually in very good condition for this type of item. I have seen many 20th century examples in far worse shape and for 250 year old examples these are remarkable survivors still practical today.
