The vessel is in general good condition. There is a restored break to a crescent-shaped section of the rim underneath one finial, and possibly another to the section of the rim underneath the other. Several scattered faint hairline cracks and a patch to one side visible under UV light, possibly from cleaning. X-Ray images are available upon request.


整體品相良好。一柱下方口沿一半月形區域見損經修。另一柱下方口沿亦或如此。整體見幾道極微細裂紋。器身一側於紫外光下見一塊異色區域,或因清潔所致。X光片可供索取。
