Penetration can be seen on the cup handle and the back of the saucer. Intrusion is a crack that enters the glaze surface during the firing process in the kiln and has passed the manufacturer's inspection. Cutlery marks can be seen on the side of the cup and the part that hits the plate of the saucer. There is no damage that would be a problem in use, but considering the penetration and cutlery marks, it will be offered at a value price.
