Condition Report

Overall in good condition. As expected with the Cypriote technique, the exterior surfaces are wonderfully irregular and tactile showing some surface irregularities and open air bubbles, all inherent in the making and decorative technique. The exterior is brilliantly iridized, displaying a variety of vibrant lavender, blue, indigo, aqua, golden and silver tones. The interior of the vase with some light surface soiling and calcification, only visible when closely inspecting the interior due to the opaque character of the glass. A very handsome and finely decorated work with beautiful coloration and iridescence.
