An old crack runs down one side of the vessel from rim to just below the shoulder, continuing laterally through approximately one-third of the circumference. Another short vertical crack to the rim. Both cracks have been repaired with adhesive. Small losses to the outer edge of the rim, including one larger chip of approximately 1 inch in length. Minor marks, chips, scratches, abrasions and small losses, including some firing flaws.
