Overall very good condition, with the exception of occasional minor abrasions to surfaces and extremities commensurate with age and use. In our opinion these do not adversely affect the overall appearance of the vase. Please note that the color in the published photograph of the work is not accurate. In reality the blue cane stripes are a cooler more vivid shade, not the dull purple/blue depicted. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report.
