This vase is distinguised by its impressive large scale, and the dramatic indentations and folds articulating the body. Synonymous with Ohr's glazing techniques, the exterior of the vase is glazed in a deep cobalt blue to contrast with the brown and ochre speckled glaze on the interior.
Overall in good condition. There are two small minor areas of restoration on the rim, both approximately 1/2 x 1/8 inch. There are a few minute glaze flecks to the top edge of the rim. As expected, there are some occasional minor surface and glaze imperfections inherent in the making. The bottom interior region of the vase with minor surface soiling. There is a small chip (1/4 inch) on the perimeter edge of the base which appears to be inherent in the making and is covered in blue glaze (possibly from when the piece was removed from the kiln). Great scale with vigorous folds and indentations to the body. The exterior is glazed in a deep cobalt blue which is much richer than in the catalogue illustration. The interior is glazed in a contrasting speckled brown and ochre. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
