The bowl fits perfectly into the stand without any problems. This piece has beautiful quality and craftsmanship. The crystal/glass is brilliant and clear.
The matching ladle rests perfectly on the edge of the bowl (as pictured). As with most pieces of this age, the condition is NOT perfect. Close-up pictures of the visible chips are. Indicative of the size/magnitude of the pieces flaws. On the upper edge of the punch bowl there are a few VERY small fleabite chips on the inner sharper side.
There is no damage on the upper edge that would draw attention or even be visible without scrutiny. On the base there are no chips that I can see on the inner portion of the top fitting. On the outer side, there are some very small chips that disappear into the cuttings of the glass and are visible only under scrutiny.
These chips do not affect the overall appearance and/or shape/design of the base. On the sawtooth bottom of the base there are only a few very small fleabites. Only one (in my opinion) is mildly significant, and it is pictured in.The base maintains its intended design and shape with a beautifully-detailed scalloped edge. I cannot find any markings on the bowl or base, but the ladle is clearly marked JD Bergen, and it is free of chips or cracks as far as I can see. A lovely cut glass punch bowl and it.
