The casting mark on the bottom of the bowl is not a crack. It is not rough to the touch, and does not go all the way through. The casting mark on the bottom of the bowl follows a seam in the bowl, so it appears bigger than it actually is, and I zoomed in.
There is a really tiny nick on one of the edges of a scallop, I could not see it with my eye, but I felt it. It is not deep and it is very tiny (See the last picture). The nick is not as big as it is in the picture, I had to zoom in far in order to capture the picture.
There are some bubbles in the punch bowl glass, but that is typical. There are a few bubbles in the ladle handle as well. Please see pictures for full description as they can describe the item's condition better than I can. It is hard to take pictures of glass, so I did the best I could. Other than that, this punch bowl set is in really good, vintage, condition.
