Everything in the picture of the table setting has 12 pieces: dinner plate, 3 side plates, cup and saucer, 2 bowls--soup and sauce. 96 pieces total.
In the picture of serving pieces, there's 1 of each: 2 platters (lg. and sm.), 2 casseroles (1 covered), gravy boat attached to bottom plate, sugar and creamer. Counting the 2 lids, there are 9 pieces. Total: 105 pieces.
I've looked at each piece and only found 1 small chip on the rim of a sauce bowl. Otherwise they are in perfect condition. They've been washed by hand or in the dishwasher with a special detergent that won't take off the gold. In the 30 or so years that I've had them, I'd say they've been used no more than a dozen times.
If you wish me to send you a picture of all the piles, which are out on my counter, to confirm this, let me know.
