The body exhibits overall minor scratching and light wear to the glaze. These tears are the work of time and condition of conservation of the item, it does not affect the general overall aspect of the vase but is visible and noticeable enough to have to be mentioned. The above defects are scattered all over the surface, mostly around the rounded body and on the elongated neck especially around the bulbous top part. We have decided NOT to clean this piece of porcelain, having notedthat the dirt does highlight the scratches and most of them would disappear with an in-depth cleaning of the vessel. The above-mentioned scratches and wears appear to be consistent with the age of the item.

We have noted a hairline approximately 1cm long starting on the mouth rim and coming down in a straight vertical line. This hairline is detected with the help of UV light but is hardly visible under normal light. Please note that the enamel covering the top part of the mouth rim appears not to be affected by the hairline which has only damaged the porcelaneous body.

An important dating indication has been changed: The dating of this lot is 18thcentury. The exact period leans more toward the Qianlong period instead of the Yongzheng period as previously indicated.
