Overall very good condition. The glass with very few minute air bubbles and particulate inclusions, inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The glass with some scattered extremely light surface scratches consistent with age and gentle handling. The vase interior and the exterior collar of the vase are strongly iridized, imparting great luminosity to the vase. When viewed in person, the vase displays an intensely saturated, rich cherry-red hue. A superb example displaying outstanding scale, coloration, and expertly rendered decoration. Please feel welcome to contact the department for additional images of this vase.
