There are NO cracks, nor flea bites - the Pepper-Bottle has a chip out of the outer upper edge (Cap & Lid fit securely); NO significant stains, scratches, hazing nor rubs - fabulous - only a little very light spice-residue within the very bottom of a couple Bottles.

The design is apparently an old illustration of the "Port of Antwerp, Belgium". One bottle (with three-language Spics Name is a little darker in tone - likely a different production run).
