Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered front and back with a pinkish white tin glaze. The painting is in blue and slightly bubbled green, with golden-brown and red luster. The sides of the well on the front are stained orange-red by diffusion of the luster. On the reverse near the edge are depressions made by the potter's fingers. One small kiln-support mark is visible on the front near the edge. There is wear and chipping to the inner and outer edges of the rim.
