There is a shallow flake to the inside edge of one tooth measuring about 5/16 across. I see similar but smaller flakes to the inside edges of a few other teeth. There is a similar flake to the outside edge of at least one tooth. There are a couple minor flakes to the base. There is some minor rubbing to the base consistent with age.
There are some very minor fine lines to inside bottom visible only when viewed at the right angle in the right light, consistent with light use. I have not found a signature on this piece but may just be missing it.
The glass is 1/2 thick. It is very deeply cut. The bowl is very heavy, weighing about 13 1/2 pounds. It has a very nice ring when tapped.Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
