**On the hexagonal cockerel plate, there are two hairline cracks to the well and to the rim, and there is some rubbing to the black pigment in the cockerel's tail. The plate with the port scene has a well-integrated professional repair to the rim. The plate with the famille verte floral border has a hairline crack to the underside of its rim, which does not extend through it. All three plates exhibit some small chips and abrading to their rims and foot rims.
