Condition: Great. There is one chip on the rim of the gravy boat. Very minimal and expected utensil marks, especially on the dinner plates are noted. Also spotted here and there is slight vintage age wear to the gold rim on some of the rims. A small spot of glaze loss was seen on two dinner and two salad plates. These faint imperfections are in the cream back round and hard to spot.
This large, clean and rare Morimura Brothers vintage collection has traveled through time and obviously had been well cherished. Other than what has been noted, there are no other chips. There are no cracks, stains, or crazing. The stunning red/orange colors are bright and the trim, despite some wear is reflective and elegant. The glaze is well intact.
