Condition: Previously owned - used.  Good condition. Super clean inside and out. One 1/2" hairline crack on one side of inner neck of spout which appears to be in the glaze (as shown). Tested and no weakness is found. Lid: One 1/4" chip on side of lid. When lid is on, not easily seen (refer to last to photographs). Two "C" shape cracks under lip of lid which have been previously repaired. The finial/handle neck appears it may have been previously worked on with a thin, well-done repair, although difficult to detect, even with a black light. Either way, it is being noted and sold as a repair. One 1/8” piece of raised, unfinished clay – imperfection on top on inner lip, although does not interfere with lid. Nice piece of early ironstone.
