An assembled set with the expected signs of age and use - surface nicks, scuffs and wear - but no dents, breaks or repairs noted. Casters hallmarked (on the upper edge of the body) with: 1) the sterling lion passant; 2) the London leopard's head; 3) the date letter, one "s" for 1913-1914 , the other "u" for 1915-1916; and 4) the "LAS" maker's mark of Lionel Alfred Crichton (Brothers). Cellars hallmarked (on the rim) with: 1) the seated Britannia; 2) the London erased lion's head; 3) the date letter, four with "b" for 1917-1918, and two with "g" for 1922-1923; and 4) the "LAS" maker's mark of Lionel Alfred Crichton (Brothers). Marks fair to excellent, some worn but legible. Glass liners good with scattered frits and fleabites on the rim, but no cracks or large chips noted; one has a small 1/8" wheel polish mark on the side where a chip has been polished out.
