Overall in excellent condition. When viewed first hand, this “Macchia” displays impressive scale and remarkably bright orange hues complemented by a blue lip wrap characteristic of Chihuly's colorful practice. The glass with scattered occasional air bubbles and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The glass surfaces present with some very light scuffing and faint scattered scratches consistent with gentle handling, as well as light surface soiling to the interior and traces of adhesive residue to the underside.
