Bough pots: Both are lacking their covers. One has one of the triangular sections in the interior to hold the cover broken off. There is some old residue that gives a stained appearance to the yellow ground, which will require professional cleaning.
Spill vases: Some very minor occasional wear to the gilding.
Sugar bowl and cover: Some very minor occasional wear to the gilding. There is an approximate 1/2-inch flat chip to the interior of the cover, which is not visible from the exterior.
