height with lid 50 mm max. width 88 mm max.
In excellent general display condition with no
restoration. Condition report: There is one tiny
chip to the top flange of the bowl: proximity to firing impurity and
presence of glazing suggests this may be a firing fault. Also a small
flat chip is present to the inside flange of the lid. This does not
show when the lid is in place and is easily missed.
