Condition

Overall in very good condition. The glass surfaces with some small and minute air bubble inclusions, as well as a few small particulate inclusions. The vase exterior with a few minute open air bubbles. The above noted issues are inherent in the making and not at all visually detracting from the vase. The underside of the vase with two old felt glides, and traces of adhesive from a previous glide. A beautiful piece displaying impressive scale, exquisite carving and elegant coloration.
