The stucco presents with some scattered light surface scratches, scuff marks and minute dents throughout. The stucco has most likely been repainted at a later stage and presents with some light surface soiling throughout and some light grey stains on the base foot.
There is a small previously restored crack at the junction between the vase and the stucco base foot, only visible upon close inspection.
The ebony handles and base present with some scattered tight hairlines, consistent with the natural aging of the material, and with a few minute dents along the edges.
