Razor scratches, probably from scraping off adhesive tape.

Thrown porcelain plate with blue paint/glaze sprayed or sponged on to create a mottled background. Green paint coats the back of the plate. The design was created by contrasting the white body of the plate with the blue paint to create shadows, lines, and highlights. A clear crackle overglaze covers the top and the bottom of the plate.

Object Description
Round blue plate with a female's face in the center. The figure has a white face and is outlined and shadowed with the same blue shade as the background.
