Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered front and back with a slightly speckled whitish tin glaze. There are concentric ridges on the back near the edge and where the rim meets the curving sides of the well. The painting is in blue, bright green, and black, with red and yellowish brown luster. On the front, in the well, are three kiln-spur marks. There is a substantial patch of damage in the center, affecting part of the body, the right wing of the eagle, and the central part of the shield; this has been repainted. The glaze on the front is somewhat worn, chipped, and scratched. There is some retouching on the reverse, not significantly affecting the mark or decoration.
