The glass plate is in excellent condition without any chips or cracks. It does have one little scratched area along the edge where the cake knife probably went a little overboard. The cover has a few little dings in it, the color is missing off of 3/8" in one part of the bottom rim, and it looks like someone painted a room off-white and didn't bother to move this out: it has tiny little paint dots on it. The paint may be able to be removed with something other than soapy water and Windex (what I tried), but I was leary of removing the green color. The handle on the top is a clear-ish plastic. As bad as the flaws may sound, it is still a stunning piece that is great to use and looks fabulous on display in the kitchen!
Cover- 5 1/2" tall with the knob, 11 3/4" diameter across the opening
Plate- 14" across, approximately 1" deep
