Additional Notes & Condition Report
Appears to be in generally good clean condition; there do not appear to be any drill holes or infilled holes (the second image shows a circular blemish that has since been cleaned away); the interior is nice and clean; there do not appear to be any hairline cracks, chips, shallow flake losses, etc.; the top flat rim edge is ground down flat and smooth and has a matte finish, apparently as made by the factory; the interior top rim edge has a very tiny fleabite-size or pinhead-size burst air bubble, apparently, in the making; when the vase is viewed from the top down it is apparent the glass wall is thinner on one side than the opposite side, as made, and not really a noteworthy glass condition issue; there is a molded signature on the side of the vase and there is also a molded FRANCE signature on the underside of the vase together with a numeral.
