14.9.42 The paint on the exterior surface is in bad condition having eroded away and become dull in the places where it remains. The middle swirl of the pattern is nearly lost completely. Reasonably free from deposits. 2003.01.0097.jpg

Foot barely remains. 2003.11.0003.jpg
30.11.4 Complete but repaired. The paint has become very faded on the exterior more than the interior surface. The handles are intact, but the paint is lost. Material is very soft and fine. 2005.89.0026.jpg
49.8.9 Intact, except for tiny chips on the rim and three small gouges on the lower body. The vessel's condition is very good, as the paint is not worn and the glaze remains. There is a dent in the body but this was made during production. Only slight wearing of the purple dots but not so as they become indistinguishable.
