ISSUE...S: This was turned into a lamp which has since been dismantled and vase put back to it's original form. However, the cord from bottom of lamp was threaded through a hole that was drilled on bottom. (See pics). That is the main issue with this vase based on age. The common issues on these, since so many flowers and leaves were hand applied, is that some of the decor chips or cracks off in small bits. As you use the enlarger, please explore around the vase to see this..Few pops on the canaries to look for, around the face area..Only very few of the blossoms were chipped...Mostly all in intact, but several of the green leaves have breaks..most are age related and not being well taken care of for the past 150 years..The bottom edge of the stopper has a small nick due to removing the applied tape that was used for the lamp, but not bad at all. Still a beautiful masterpiece from Meissen that will only increase in value and make a nice investment!!
