Additional Notes & Condition Report

appears to be in good condition; no apparent chips, hairlines, etc.; there are some small dark discoloration marks located in and around the red floral blossoms around the sides, which appear to be carbon flecks or carbon inclusions, in the making; there are some thin dark lines on the underside and lower portion of the vase that have the appearance of being hairlines, however, it is this appraiser's opinion they are simply lines that silhouette or outline the trailed green threads of glass; there is a glass button or wafer applied over the pontil mark, in the making; the interior of the bowl is nice and clean (no water staining or discoloration); there is a single black carbon inclusion embedded on the interior side of the vase, located towards the bottom of the neck area
