Overall condition very good with no damage or restoration detected. There are occasional minor air bubbles to the exterior surfaces from the manufacturing process, however in our opinion these do not adversely affect the overall attractive appearance of the vase. Please note that the photograph in the catalogue does not accurate represent the true color/tone. The photograph makes some of the greens appear slightly too pale and washed out. Overall in our opinion the vase presents well with impressive large scale and proportion.
