Overall in very good condition. When viewed firsthand, the vase displays a cool turquoise color which is subtly variegated with green and grey. The glaze with scattered minor surface irregularities throughout inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The glazed surface with scattered minor surface scratches and occasional minor stray marks consistent with age and gentle handling. The vase with some traces of surface soiling and minor instances of dried surface residue concentrated to the recessed areas of the design, consistent with age. Five of the stems arching from the body up to the collar with small restorations to the edges, only visible upon very close inspection and not visually distracting. One of these stems with a slightly larger edge restoration measuring approximately 1 x ½ inch, only visible upon very close inspection and not visually distracting. The interior of the vase with some minor surface soiling and surface irregularities, not visually distracting. A stunning example of this rare model displaying an exceptional glaze and great sculptural presence.
