Overall, the vase is in excellent condition, There are no chips, damage, or losses. There is minor wear (scratching) to the underside, commensurate with age and use. There is one area of concern (not damage) that occurred during the production of this vase.
Cameo glass requires the layering and careful removal of the layered glass to achieve the differences in color. However, for this vase, the core was made of opaque white glass, and to achieve the upper pink color, the upper portion had to be dipped in molten pink glass. The result of this technique is some extra pink overspill to the top of the vase, which was subsequently polished off. This caused some irregularities to the pink glass in the area of the bird's break rim (as shown).The vase was inspected by Bruce Orr (Jaramos Auctions, and one of the better know glass experts in America). He confirmed that the vase is authentic, and free of any damage. This quote is for the Continental U. These charges are the buyers responsibility. FREE scheduling, supersized images and templates.
