There are no major chips, cracks, or damage found in the small cup. The smaller, handless pitcher has a minor chip on the spout (1/16 inch long) but is otherwise sound and intact. The larger pitcher has a chip on the underside of the footrim (1/4 inch in diameter) likely caused by contact with another ceramic object.
