Condition: In good shape with no breaks, hairlines, or repairs. It does have general crazing to the glaze and a chip to the foot, which we show in the 4th, 4th, and 7th photo. It also has two small surface chips or loss of glaze on the foot, which can be seen at 4 and 12 O'clock. Finally the lighter color spot at about 9:00 O'clock in the 6th photo is manufacturing defect where the coloring did not flow and the piece was glazed. The piece also has some of the usual and normal defects you would expect in these old primitive pieces such as pops, mold error, unevenness, and unglazed spots. Be that as it may this is a beautiful piece and solid piece. Please see photos for additional condition information.
