Condition

12.31.23- In my opinion regarding LOT: 749—a UV examination was rather unremarkable, however, I do observe what appears to be a small hairline at the rim of the pot, extending down to the shoulder, it is not readily apparent, so I have taken close-up photos for your review, I further note some typical overall discoloration, inherent imperfections, and scattered minute divots/nicks? to pot, I am not an expert on such pottery, so have taken numerous images for your review, there are no apparent large chips noted<br><br>Detailed condition reports are not included in this catalog.
