Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a truly nice piece which is very difficult to come by. The colors are rich, fresh and vivid and would display very well in your collection.
Condition: The piece is in good condition after being around for almost 100 years. It has no cracks, hairlines, or repairs. The piece has a small chip to the top of the rim, which we show in the last photo. The piece was repaired in the past but you can still see a few spots without coloring. It also has general light crazing to the glaze as well as a few light scratches to the surface, which are difficult to see with the naked eye. Be that as it may its colors are fresh and vivid with no losses. <font color=red><b> Because of the chip mentioned earlier we are selling the piece "AS IS" at a fraction of its true value. </font> Please see photos for additional condition information.
