Appears to have been professionally restored, including repair and restoration to the mouth and spout (overpainted on the interior of the mouth and spout), with fracture line visible both at the interior and exterior of part of the spout and mouth; the brown wavy scroll at the mouth and the black wavy scroll on the handle appear to be enhanced; there seems to be an edition of paint across the top of the handle and there is some cream colored infilling at the base of the handle. There is some unobtrusive minor soiling and scuffs, and a few unobtrusive shallow nicks to the rim of the underside.
