1942.9.535, but its paler green tone makes the effect less immediately apparent. What is more noticeable is the crystallized appearance of the glaze, particularly at the shoulder. Occasionally the green enamel extends over the underlying grayish white glaze onto the foot, and upward to the top of the exterior mouth rim. The crackle in the underlying glaze is quite wide, and it does not appear to have been stained. The unglazed, wedge-shaped foot is covered with a light brown slip, some of which has worn off. The base and interior are covered solely with the grayish white glaze.
