Summary fair

Assessor BN

Notes On front at lower edge there is a chip in the stoneware with loss. To right of front text there are paper accretions, looks like sticker. Exterior and interior of crock have brown stains from liquid. Top lip is dirty and stained. No glaze on lip, either wore off or was not glazed originally. On interior at bottom stoneware has radiating cracks, two clusters of cracks. Bottom of crock is dirty and discolored. Wear on edges. A clear coating covers the bottom, unsure if original or added subsequently. Black staining in creaves of stoneware on bottom.
