It is in excellent condition (see photos). The tiny white spots on rim are a characteristic of clay pottery not a flaw. Only sign of wear are some surface scratches on unpainted clay bottom. This can and should be used.
It is a perfect size for a centerpiece empty or filled with fruit. Great for buffet table for large salad, pasta, etc. And can stand alone as a beautiful art pottery now vintage.
Please examine photos and feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. Bowl is smothered in bubble wrap and specially purposed packing in heavy box to arrive at your home safely. TS Post pottery continues to increase in value.
