I always inspect items in detail and list any major faults such as cracks & chips in the description.You should expect some age-related signs of wear such as very small fine surface scratches/marks. Also many of the items are handmade, they may have small imperfections and often tool marks from where they have been shaped and worked in the manufacturing process.
