Very good to excellent for age and type. The type of souvenir plate has slight maker imperfection but no damage at all - not even a utensil mark or crazing. There are no chips, no hairlines, no cracks. Each plate has the maker mark as shown. Among them, there are 2 which have duplicates. People love to collect all they can find from the collection series, and doubles do not devalue a set of 8 in such fine condition. Each plate is shown so you can enjoy the charming art and sayings. Display or use. World Expo souvenir.
