Condition standards are often different for dissinator types of items, materials and ages. One area might accept dents or dimples (furniture) were as another might be critical (silver). So we have attempted to define conditions as we use it in our gallery and on our web site. We are critical inour buying and don't buy damaged merchandise. Once in a great while an item is just to good to pass up over a small damage. If applicable any chip, crack or repair will be noted in the description. You can rely on our condition grades. If you have any further questions about a specific item please feel free to contact us.
