There are two hairline cracks to the rim (each approx. 2.3 and 1.2 cm, the latter with associated over-spray to the interior). There are also some general surface wear and firing imperfections, including numerous burst bubbles, glaze crackles and glaze pulls. Some of the glaze pulls just above the foot have chippings. There is also a shallow, discoloured area to the foot, which might be minor infills/restoration. The actual colour of the bowl consists of a small tint of purple just under the rim.
