Additional Notes & Condition Report

UPDATED ON MONDAY, MARCH 27 AT 6:00 PM (SEE BOTTOM): Appears to be in generally good condition; no apparent hairline cracks, chips, etc.; there are approximately 3 slight grooves or indentations along top rim edge which appear to be in the making, (possibly tool marks) but not of any great consequence; there are perhaps 2 small flea bite or pin head size nicks to bottom rim edge, which are not of any real consequence; there do not appear to be any surface nicks or abrasions to female nude figures, however, there appears to be a small very shallow flake loss to an area of water coming from one of the urns, approximately mid-height; the interior appears to be nice and clean (i.e. no cloudiness); lastly there are light scratches to the underside, consistent with age and usage; signed R. LALIQUE.

UPDATE: There are two scratch lines located on the interior side of vase, located near the top rim edge and extending down in a vertical direction; these lines do not appear to be hairline cracks; they may possibly be "straw marks," in the making, or else simple scratches; they do not appear to go into the body of the glass and do not appear to be visible when the vase is examined from the exterior side
