Catalogue Note

One of the brushwashers has been damaged, most likely it was broken in half and then restuck and repainted.  There are traces of repainting visible (but too insignificant to see from the catalogue illustration).  The gilding on the mouthrim has been repainted.  Otherwise the other brushwasher and both covers are in good condition overall.  The enamels are well preserved, with virtually no loss to the gilding.
