Condition: The vase is in good condition with no cracks, hairlines, or repairs. Its colors are fresh, vivid, and great looking. The vase has general crazing to the glaze, which is difficult to see because of the coloring and the nature of the surface. The vase has a small spot on the edge of the mouth where the blue coloring is missing and may be a small loss of the surface glaze and coloring. However, the spot does not feel rough and close examination suggests it is glazed over suggesting that it is original to the making of the piece. Be that as it may, this is a great looking piece to add to your collection or use as a decorative accent around your home.
