No cracks in good used condition..Cunningham & Pickett was one of several names used by Alfred Cunningham. The Company based in Alliance Ohio was a distributor of dinnerware, not a manufacturer. Their products were distributed from the 1930?s to the 1960?s, with most of these being made by the Homer Laughlin China Company. Cunningham ceased ordering from Homer Laughlin and others at the end of the 1960?s. Most Cunningham china bares a pattern name as part of the backstamp, making identification easy.
