Condition is excellent. There is a extremely fine, invisible piece of restoration to the very tip of the spout, clearly just to remedy some light fritting and the whole appears to be perfect and original. No other restoration or damage. Very light surface wear only to the enamels and a bit of rubbing to the glaze on top of the dog's head.
