Overall in excellent condition. This bowl reedition piece was produced circa 2006 and is marked with the foundation inventory tag. The glazed surfaces with some glaze imperfections, and some light crazing, inherent to the production process. The coloration of the bowl when viewed in person shows wonderful nuance and precision in the glaze work. A true masterwork and icon of American design that portrays a rich narrative of a singular night spent in New York City.
