Condition

In overall good condition. There is a horizontal shrinkage crack that runs the length of the case bottom and another notable shrinkage crack to the bottom of the lift-out tray. The glasses are from two nearly identical sets; one with slightly larger stem foot and a hairline taller. Edge (presumably chip) has been sanded out of one foot rim. There is a "flea-bite" chip to one glass rim.
