Conservation Notes

A light green enamel covers the interior, exterior, and base of the vessel. The underlying glaze is gray-white. The interior crackle is less pronounced and consistent than that on the exterior. The green enamel stops in a neat line at the mouth, so that the mouth rim is simply covered with the underlying gray-white glaze. At the foot a small amount of enamel flows over the glaze onto the foot-ring. The unglazed foot-ring has been coated with a deep brown wash. It shows almost no wear and has a sheen. There is a small, deep flaw in the green glaze along a crackle line on the base.
