The handles have ivory stops in them to keep the handle from getting too hot. The two pots have hinged lids which are in perfect working order. Each piece stands on a wide pedestal style base which keeps them sturdy. The set was made by Martin Hall & Co.
One cartouche is engraved with a standing lion holding a bulls head and the other one has never been monogrammed or engraved. My photos do not begin to show the beauty of this set.
