Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a truly nice and rare 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 with no chips or repairs. The piece has signs of onset of glaze crazing with minor signs of crazing. Most importantly, the piece has a tight hairlines to one side, which we show in the last photo. Interestingly enough when you tap on the piece it does not sound like it is cracked, but it is. This is the main reason we are selling the piece "AS IS" and offering it at a fraction of its true value. Be that as it may, the piece's colors are fresh and vivid with no losses and looks great to display in your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
