As noted in the catalogue, there is a prior restoration to one outer tip along the rim of the vase. The restoration was sensitively executed and overpainted and therefore not readily visible. The feathering along the body of the vase and base are finely executed. With a few minor air bubble inclusions, which are inherent in the making. With surface soiling to the bottom of the interior and exterior of the base.

Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.
