Overall very good condition with no damage or restoration detected. Please note that the photograph in the printed an online catalogue is not accurate. In the reality the body is more bone white – whereas in the photograph it appears slightly cream/white. In the photograph the decorative applied gold powders are also not clearly evident. The underside of the vase has an applied circular foot. The vase is thin walled and very light to the touch.
