There are no chips or cracks and the glaze is bright and shiny on any of the 6* listed for sale only some light scuffing at the high points from stacking and light scratches from use are notable. Each pat measures 3 1/2 inches in diameter and all are marked, O E & G with an ivy wreath and have the wording, Royal, inside the wreath, Austria, beneath the wreath.
