Good overall condition. The surface presents with some soiling throughout, more significant on the inside of the bowl, consistent with age and use. There are some instances of light wear/abrasion to the glaze. The edges and the protruding areas of the bowl presents with instances of previous restoration to the ceramic, most likely to restore previous chips (some of them visible to the naked eye). One figure presents with a light crack to one foot, most likely previously restored, that appears stable. This lot has not been inspected under black light.
