Additional Notes & Condition Report

appears to be in generally good, undamaged condition; there is a burst open air bubble, located at the top flat rim edge of the vase, apparently in the making; when viewed straight down on the interior side there appear to be some firing lines to the body that are in the "well" area o the outer perimeter, however, they actually appear to be separation lines to the white glaze that is somewhat pooled at the bottom; the vase resonates when gently struck; not black lighted
