There is one crack that looks like it occurred during its production as it does not go very far into the thick side wall of the crock (see detailed photos). Please view the pictures for a more complete idea of condition. The bottom has a texture that looks similar to thin wale corduroy, possibly the crock was set on fabric before it was fired and the lines were imprinted from the weight pressing down.
