In overall very good condition with no significant dents or scratches noted and only minor wear to the well-detailed decoration. One dish has an insignificant 3/16" crack on the underside of the rim. High polish, slight thinning and light hammer marks on the underside suggest that an inscription may have been removed from the underside of one or both dishes.
