  • Condition The vases are offered in good presentable condition with one vase having a couple of very minor frits to the top rim and a hairline running down the neck. The second vase also has a couple of frits with a hairline with a chip to the top rim and with a couple small bits of surface glaze loss where it runs down the body of the vase. These do not detract and the vases display well. An unusual and interesting pair of vases for the discerning collector!  View More Details
