Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered front and back, except beneath the foot ring, with a whitish tin glaze. The painting is outlined in blue but mainly executed in red and golden-brown lusters. There are three kiln-support marks on the sides of the well. The glaze is scratched and cracked, and the outer and inner edges of the rim are chipped and worn. Substantial chips in the rim between three and five o'clock have been filled and overpainted.
