Overall very good condition with no restoration or damage detected. There is a very minor surface abrasion to the outer edge of the top rim approximately 1mm wide, however in our opinion this does not adversely affect the overall attractive appearance of the vase. There is a small raised impurity nodule (approximately 1mm wide) to the surface of the underside edge of the central raised section of the vase as a result of the manufacturing process. The color tone in the printed an online catalogue appears slight too brown than how the vase appears in reality. In reality, daylight and indirect UV light the vase has slightly more red tones. Further images of the vase can be provided on request that portray a more realistic sense of the color. Overall this represents a rare opportunity to acquire a scarce model in a rare technique.
