This beauty has a wonderful body shape with fluted, ridged sides and a matte finish. At the widest part of the bulbous base, under the scalloped rim and on the lid it has raised relief in a scallop design. Raised relief in the shape of tree branches are on the spout and the surrounding area. A celery green background is around the top, lid and base with a creamy white background for the center of this piece. The handle, rim, spout and finial have been painted a rich gold color. A small bottom lid rim-bump is mentioned for accuracy, see pic #5. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
