incised Jouve and with the artist's cipher

Overall in very good condition. The ceramic body and glazing present with very minor irregularities inherent to production and the artist's practice. The ceramic with very fine scuffing and scratches throughout consistent with gentle use, some of which appear to have been partially in-painted and are not visually distracting. The glaze with irregular application inherent to the making as well as very minimal areas of scattered discolorations consistent with age and gentle handling. When viewed in person the rim presents with very subtle green hues inherent to production which enhance the artistic quality of the piece.
