All the pieces except for the Covered Vegetable Bowl are. Lightly used with some use marks. Most of the pieces have a moderate amount of light crazing (this is the norm for the early thin edged pieces).
Later pieces were much thicker and didn't craze as easily. Except for a tiny 1/16th inch chip/factory bubble burst, on the underside of the rim of the Covered Vegetable Bowl, there aren't any chips, cracks or staining. The base color of the ware is off-white/cream. As you can see, the pattern is a wreath of Ivy leaves and vines. The leaves are green and the vines are brown.
Please see my close-up photo of the unique embossed Royal Gadroon edge pattern that was molded into the ware. The Royal Gadroon shape has a very thin and fragile edge area (so it chipped very easily). The mark on the back of the pieces is a crown W/curtains shield with the words HARKER, Oldest Pottery n America, Est. There is a large arcing "Royal Gadroon" in script below the shield followed by the pattern name "Ivy" 3. Here is a list of the pieces.One 9 3/4 Round Covered Vegetable Bowl - RARE! The bowl has a tiny 1/16 factory bubble burst/chip on the underside of the rim (see photo 3) and the cover has an area on the underside of the ridge that fits down into the bowl that has some factory roughness (see photo 6).
