A very few manufacturing notations include one speck to the cup, a very light mist-like black paintbrush mark against the cup mint green background, and very light specks to the saucer only seen under close observation. To the underside of the saucer we spotted a very light hue of mint green, with two specks of paint.
There are no chips, cracks, stains, crazing or repairs. The detail is sharp and the colors bright with no wear. The gold trim is bright and shows no wear, and the glaze is smooth and intact.
