Condition Report

Overall in good order. With some wear to paint and gilding throughout. One cup with repaired or repainted section on the edge, about 1 by 0.5cm. Another cup with a handful of small chips to the bottom rim. One saucer with shallow cracks to the top layer of coating, probably as a result of a firing flaw.


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. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot.
