Losses- chiefly to the woollen background, though some areas of the silks are also worn ( stems of the plants mainly). Overall condition of the embroidery is good. Dimensions: 175cm. x 45 cm. c.1900. The cover is backed with linen.
A few very small glaze chips. Slight kiln grit adhering to base. No other faults.
4 in. crack to the rim. Some chipping to rim. No other faults.
Some wear to gilding. Two of the feet have been resoldered in place (one of them with additional traces of glue).
No faults. A couple of tiny glaze nibbles to reverse (due to plate hanger)

The rims- relatively thin- are slightly wonky. No other faults.
Five short hairline cracks to rim, the longest 4.0 cm. Typical discolouration, glaze crawling within the mouth. The casual manner of their potting and luting is part of the charm and aesthetic of these jars.
