The ceramic is sound. There is a network of hairline crazing throughout the glaze. There are a few dark specks at the base of the handle and in the turquoise slip where the clay has expelled impurities. There are some faint specks of surface dirt on the handle and neck of the jug. There is some minor scuffing to the underside and some dirt in the interior. This work is in very good overall condition.
