Hello:  Yes the crazing happens from moisture that gets under the  glaze, this
happens during washing of iems like the cookie jars.  crazing in many respects
adds to the beauty of the item and companies that do reproductions actually
simulate the crazing.  As far as  how and where to display...well I have
them on
special shelves made for the wall to placement as decoration in various
rooms in
the house and office.  The biggest problem is running out of room since I
want to enjoy
them and have others see them...I even have the web cam to share with
collectors on
the internet...the problem is I have gone through 3 cameras.  Cheers!  Terry
