Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The glass with scattered and very minor surface irregularities, air bubbles, and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The area above the base presents with very minor abrasions to the glass consistent with gentle handling, which are not visible unless closely inspected. The glass with some pinhole surface irregularities with occasional and very spotty areas of darkening to the glass consistent with age and not visually distracting. A majestic vase by the glassmaker enhanced by variegated bright colors throughout. 


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.
