Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. When viewed in person, the glaze presents a bright black texture. The works present with very minor pinholes to the glaze and occasional surface abrasions, not visually distracting and consistent with age and gentle use. This lot has been examined under UV light and to our knowledge does not show any evidence of prior restoration. This group is a rare opportunity to acquire a diverse and functional set of ceramics by the French artist, all in superb condition.

Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
