The ceramic is sound. There is fine crazing to the glaze in the white ground throughout the vase and lid. Dust in the deepest crevices. Some minor chips to the edges of the base and underside. Some scattered accretions and dirt, particularly to the lid, due to age and use. Otherwise, fine. This work is in overall very good condition.
