Additional Comments, April 22, 2013:
The handle of the teapot has been glued back together and temporarily put in place. It needs proper restoration, but certainly should be restorable. In the worst case, it provides a good pattern for a replacement.
The tray has general scuffing across the open field, and there are a few small nicks or pecks. A good buffing and polish would clean it up considerably.
