Conservation Notes

The exterior has designs slip-trailed in white onto the surface and covered with yellow and green enamels on the biscuit. The high foot is hollow and glazed with a blue-tinged transparent glaze; the foot-ring is sharply trimmed. There is a hairline crack emanating from the lip; the lip is covered by a brass band.
