Some pieces do show crazing, which is typical due to its age. Also some pieces do have imperfections, either small chips (mostly on their underside) which cannot be seen from their top sides or pieces have some spots or discolorations on them. All imperfections can also be seen in the photos on this listing. The pieces with imperfections are. 2 of the Dinner plates with one small chip on its underside.
1 of the Dinner plate has 3 small chips on its underside. 3 of the Dinner plates have spots on their front sides (2 with black spots and 1 with brown spots) and I'm unsure whether these can be removed or not. 1 Salad plate has a hairline crack (approximately 2.5 long) that cannot be felt but does show on top as well as the underneath side. 2 Soup/Salad Bowls have a small chip on the underside edge that can be felt underneath but not seen or felt on the top side.
1 Soup/Salad Bowls has a slight chip on the rim that's very hard to see but it can be felt. 1 Soup /Salad Brown has brown spots on its front side and I'm uncertain if these can be removed or not. 1 Dessert Bowls shows the painted coloring has faded significantly to very light or pale coloring.1 Bread Plate has a hairline crack (approximately 2 long) that cannot be felt but does show on top as well as the underneath side. 1 Cup has a couple of chips along its top edge that can be both seen and felt. 1 Cup has a small chip at the very top of the handle but is difficult to see. It's also difficult to feel due to where it's located. But this is the ONLY imperfection that I did not get a photo of prior to boxing this entire set up to be stored until it sells.
Again, all imperfections can be seen in the attached photos, excluding the last one mentioned above. Otherwise this pre-owned set is in EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION!
