The porcelain set is in generally good condition with no major chips, cracks, or losses. One of the dishes has minute chips. One of the cups has firing flaws along its inner side; along its underside, there is a line of residue that is only visible under UV light by the footrim. One of the dishes has a minute gold accretion by the footrim. All four items have sticker residue along their underside. Wear to the rim, consistent with age and use. There are some minor losses to the gilt. The chips on the rim are repainted gold; aside from it, there is no other sign of restoration attempts. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
