In generally good, vintage condition. WATER GOBLETS: Five feet with reduced circumference. Scattered circular worn rings under feet, maybe related to the reduction process. SMALL GOBLETS: There are variations of height consistent with rim repairs over time. Scattered circular worn rings under feet, maybe related to the reduction process. One example with a flake chip from the foot edge (1/2" x 1/4"), another with a small chip at the foot edge (1/4" x 1/8"). FINGER BOWLS: One with a 1/4" crack down from the rim. Very scattered scratches/minor wear to bottom. SOUP BOWLS: Overall good. One with several surface scratches, another with a single long scratch to underside of the recessed center.

All of the above consistent with age and use.
