The black spots are reflections and not on the tea set. This listing is for a Victorian art nouveau 6 piece tea set which was manufactured by The Reed & Barton Silver Company during the early 1900's.
The tea set features a delicate design of repousse apple blossoms and branches on each piece as can be seen in the pictures. The set may have been re-silvered at one time though I can't be positive. There are no monograms or dents, and the inside of each piece is clean and usable and there are no visible repairs.
