The following is impressed: Gebr. 
Friedlander; hallmark; 800; crescent moon & crown (the Kaiser's symbols). 

Good condition with minor surface wear commensurate with over 100 years in existance (look at the 'photos to see they are scarcely visible with the naked eye) and a questionable join of the spout to the body - might be an old restoration and might be original (again, see 'photos).
