The ceramic is sound. There are some surface impurities, likely inherent to the firing process and a few minor scuffs to the surface of the glaze, likely inherent to the artist's process. There is a small chip to the glaze (approx. 0.5cm) to the lower edge of the plate. The foot of the plate has some light dirt accretions. This work is in overall good condition.
