Condition: excellent no chips, cracks, nicks, hairlines. Seriously--no chips, cracks, nicks, scratches, crazing, nips, fleabites, etc. There are three "issues"--1 the pot "lists" a bit toward the back end--probably sagged a bit during firing in the kiln (pic 5); 2 there are some thin glaze spots along the rim (pics 6 and 7); and 3 someone put masking tape on the cork to make the lid stay tight or to hold the cork together. I have been dealing in american glass, pottery, and dinnerware for over 35 years.You can be assured that the items for sale are in the condition described and identified to the best of my ability. I pack all items very carefully and double-box if merited.
