Overall in very good condition. Some very minor, faint scratches to glaze, consistent with age and use. One small chip to glaze on the "Cocktails" plate, only visible upon close inspection. Some minor glazing imperfections and popped glaze bubbles, inherent to the production process. The coloration of the plates when viewed in person show wonderful nuance and precision in the glaze work.
The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition.
