Overall in very good condition. A colorful and carefully decorated example by Rozenburg, this vase includes figurative motifs of a parrot and sunflower executed with great precision. The shoulder of the piece presents with very light crackling to the glaze consistent with age and not visible unless closely inspected. One area of the neck presents with some very slight darkening to the porcelain surface which is not visually distracting. One side of the body with a very minor hairline crack measuring approximately 1 in., stable. The underside of the vase presents with very light restoration work to the glazed surface which is only visible when inspected under blacklight.
