Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered front and back with a somewhat pitted pinkish white glaze. The painting is in blue, gray, yellow, and white. Four neat kiln-support marks are near the edge on the front. There is a crack from two o'clock to the center, repaired and overpainted. The edge was originally painted yellow, but has been entirely overpainted white.
