I'm not familiar with that design. Prices are high for me, so I mostly follow the real collectors & sigh a lot.But I do have a few really good pieces that I acquired before I even knew it was a thing - I just liked the bright colors. :)

For me:
it has a crack in it
it has a mark on it
it has a chip off it.
The chip is a small fragment that has come off. The bowl is chipped ( or has a chip off it). The floor might have that chip on it.
...and when the runner drops and breaks it, returning to the auctioneer, who says, "and now we'll sell it by-the-piece"....
I have often wondered what the insurance payout value would be at that point.

Yes, me too.
That reminds me of the information my antiques-restoration mentor gave me back in the 70's: Venetian glass is one of the more valuable types of glass, more fragile than most. If you need to check a piece to see if it is authentic Venetian glass, strike it with a small mallet with 14 foot-pounds of pressure. If it breaks, it was Venetian.

It reminds of a similar story about how to find your wife in a black-out. But I don't remember the details. :)

Good one. The technique-alternatives and their myriad outcomes...
