Overall very good condition. The hand-wrought copper surface displays an exceptionally rich and warm russet brown patina. The surface presents with scattered minor surfaces scratches, some discolorations, and light wear consistent with age and gentle handling. The vase with one larger scratch measuring approximately 6 inches long draped across the shoulder of the vase. The lower rim with slightly more visible areas of discolorations, not visually distracting. The interior of the vase with surface soiling and oxidation, consistent with age and use.
