Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered front and back - except beneath the foot ring - with a slightly pitted off-white tin glaze of pinkish brown tone. The painting of the front is in blue with an uneven yellowish golden-brown luster (with streaks of red) and a deep red luster; the blue is thick and has bubbled in places. The glaze has pooled and crawled somewhat on the front. There are no visible kiln-support marks. The glaze is scratched and the luster worn, and the edge is extensively worn and chipped.
