There are no chips, cracks, or breaks. There are kiln flaws such as grit on the shoulder, bumps and pimples in the body glaze. There is also a small kiln flaw on the foot; I believe this is a kiln flaw and not a ship. There are a few darker green dots in the glaze. Otherwise, the glazes are shiny and bright.
A colorful and decorative handmade vase that will stand out in a room.
