The diamond shaped vase has a 1/4 inch by 1/8 inch chip on the middle of one side with two subsequent long haircracks. The tall vase is in good condition and has some very minor wear to the corners. There is also a uniform splattering of white residue around the sides which is over the glaze and purely decorative as depicted in the catalogue illustration.
