Condition Report: In a few places, a darker granite color appears beneath the reddish/brown color (at the edge of the roof and the underside of the legs).There is variation in the brown color throughout, the top of the roof appears slightly cooler in tone as does the interior of the work. This can be attributed to residual of the firing process and/or intrinsic in the clay itself. Other works from this period, in Kasama and other stonewares also show variations in the clay color, which can be identified as the results of firing and should not be considered a condition issue. There is minor dust and surface soiling accumulated on the interior and inside the window openings. There are two faint moisture stains on the top of the roof near the edge, one measuring 1/2 inch and the other 1 1/2 inch. The outer edge of the roof is very slightly shiny and also the inside of the roof to approx. 1-inch. there is faint scuffing or white chalk on the underside in the area of the monogram and undersides of the legs. Overall in very good condition. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging.
