Height: 44.5 cm.
Condition: Good overall with very think and rich coloured enamels, some gilt rubbing on the rim and minor on some flowers, two stress star-shaped hairlines; these are related to cooling during manufacturing; the longest starting from the centre of the star-shaped hairline; 5 cm. the vase is very strong and stable.
