Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. This vase is decorated with a strongly geometric motif of concentric overlapping circles articulated in red, grey and dark grey lacquer. The lacquer presents with some minor and expected signs of gentle handling and age consistent with the natural evolution of the medium. The metallic rim presents with some minor oxidation and scattered minor surface scratches and abrasions consistent with age and gentle handling. The body and base with a few occasional minute losses to the lacquered surface, not visually distracting. The shoulder of the vase with one small loss to the lacquer measuring approximately 1/8 wide and not visually distracting. The opposite side of the shoulder with a shallow, horizontal surface scratch measuring approximately 3/4 inch wide and only visible upon close inspection. This piece has been inspected under blacklight and shows no apparent evidence of prior restoration. A dynamic and extremely charming work.
