Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. When viewed firsthand, this vase presents with extremely delicate and finely articulated pulled feather decoration executed in vibrant orange which descends into a soft green-yellow ground. The glass displays with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and minor surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The stem with a very subtle bend just above the foot, only visible upon close inspection. The underside of the foot with two labels and remnants of a third label, and with a discretely applied accession number in red enamel, not visually detractive. A very finely executed and elegant form with great scale.
