Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a truly nice vase which is very difficult to come by. The colors are rich, fresh and vivid and would display very well in your collection.

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 shows loss of the surface glaze and coloring. There is also another round spot below it which we believe is strictly an artifact of the making and is original to the piece. We do show these issues in the 5th photo. 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. Because of the two spots we show in the fifth photo, we are selling this piece AS IS at a fraction of its true value. Please see photos to appreciate the beauty, quality and for additional condition information about the pieces.
