First, there are some quite tiny nicks along the foot at one spot, which are not visible on display. The second shows a small section of the gilding that has been worn back to the white porcelain (not distracting because the white interior is visible too when you examine the piece that closely).And finally, there are a couple of small areas that appear to have been regilt sometime after manufacture. None of these issues is noticeable when on display in your china cabinet. Except as described here, there are no nicks, chips, hairlines, or repairs. Guaranteed to be an eye-catching conversation piece. I'm Mark Bassett, author and collector. I also recommend the group Pottery Collector on Facebook. Great place for beginners and advanced collectors to mingle and learn more about art pottery of all sorts. As an American Art Pottery Association (AAPA) member, I abide by their Code of Ethics. Please let me know within 3 days, if you want to return the piece.
