Conservation Notes

Earthenware, covered front and back with a grayish white tin glaze. The painting is in blue, gray, orange, yellow, white, and greenish black. On the front, near the rim, are three kiln-support marks, one of which has been overpainted. On the reverse a flaw in the firing has resulted in a substantial hole in the glaze. A crack from eight o'clock to the center has been repaired with some overpaint, and there are patches of overpaint on the rim around five, eight, and eleven o'clock. The outer and inner edges of the rim are worn.
