Conservation Notes

The bowl originally had a low splayed foot, which has been chipped away. It is of earthenware, covered front and back with an off-white tin glaze. The painting is in blue, green, yellow, orange-brown, and near-black, with golden-brown and deep red luster. Three kiln scars are visible on the back. A piece has been broken away at three o'clock and replaced, with some overpaint. The edge is chipped and worn, and there is overpaint on the edge at one o'clock and four o'clock.
