Each comport has a small degree of rubbing to the surfaces and rim, no serious chips or cracks to any. There is an overglaze painted strip to underside of one, though it's not apparent why there is paint there, it doesn't appear to be disguising a damage such as a crack. Overall very good, with wear in keeping with age. Added photos show all sides.
