What does this mean?

Hello Caroline,

This is a vintage brass Chinese teapot featuring lovely etched details. This piece is in good vintage condition, although there are some signs of wear to the finish which is common in vintage brass and adds to the charm of the piece.

These types of objects were mass produced during mid to late 20th century.
