Teapot: 9 ¾ inches tall, capacity of 6 cups (48 fluid ounces/1419 milliliters). Sugar bowl: 4 1/4 inches tall, 5 ¾ inches from handle to handle. Creamer: 4 3/4 inches tall. Each piece of the set is stamped with the maker's mark K. Uyeda as well as 950 sterling for the purity of the silver.

This set is in excellent condition. There is only the most minor of surface wear, the set is very clean inside and out. There are no leaks, no splits, no dents, no monograms, no monogram removals, and no solder repairs. The total weight for the set is 2644 grams or 93.2 regular ounces.
