The ceramic is sound. There is some very stable craquelure to the top clear glaze throughout, which is not visually distracting. There are a few small bubbles around the belly of the jug and towards the wing, inherent to the firing process. There is some minor scuffing to the underside and dirt in the interior. This work is in good overall condition.
