Overall in very good condition. With a few minute air bubble and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not at all visually detracting. The fan with some subtle linear tool marks (visible in the catalogue illustration), all inherent in the making and quite commonly seen in Jack in the Pulpit series. The fan is vigorously ruffled, giving the vase a dynamic sculptural presence and evoking the delicacy of a flower petal. The bottom portion of the fan below the aperture with tool marks, inherent in the production process. The interior with some light surface soiling. The foot with some light surface scratches and a small area of rubbing, consistent with age and gentle handling. The vase with some internal calcification and dried watermarks. The underbase with discretely applied accession number by prior owner. The exterior surfaces of the vigorously ruffled fan and foot are beautifully iridized, imparting the vase with superb luminosity and a spectacular range of brilliant hues as seen in the catalogue illustration. An impressive example of the “Jack-in-the-Pulpit” form with stunning, rich coloration and brilliant iridescence.
