Overall in very good condition. The glass displays with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and minor surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The interior of the vase with a surface irregularity likely resulting from an air bubble on the surface during production, not visibly detractive and inherent to the production process. The glass surfaces with some occasional extremely fine and minor surface scratches, consistent with age and gentle handling. The interior of the vase with some light surface soiling and some possible calcification, not visually detractive. A very handsome vase with beautifully carved details and strong golden iridescence.
