Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered on the front and sides and patchily on the back with a whitish, somewhat pockmarked tin glaze. The painting is in blue, green, brown, orange, yellow, gray, black, and white. A break through the Madonna's dress and the kneeling Magus has been repaired and carefully overpainted, and there is some overpaint, flaking slightly, on the edge, particularly around the lower left-hand corner.
