The underglaze with very light craquelure which is common for such works and consistent with age and the natural evolution of the medium. The ceramic with very fine surface scuffing throughout consistent with gentle use. The glaze with scattered black dots which are inherent to production. This piece has been inspected under blacklight and shows no apparent evidence of prior restoration.
