First let me say what is wrong with this vase. There is a internal crack in the middle of the vase. This crack is in-between the layers of glass and was a manufacturing flaw while cooling. The vase is fully signed and I don't think the studios even noticed this crack.This crack can only be seen if held to light. It does not puncture the surface on the outside or the inside of the vase. The vase holds water no leak. The second issue is once in this vase life it was used to hold flowers and the glass is''sick'' there is a calcium deposit build up on the inside this could be cleaned and restored by a professional.
The third issue is a small chip to the button pontil. This looks like it was made like this. (please see last 2 photos for crack and water deposit). This little guy wont last long. This vase is absolutely amazing!I have seen lots of Cypriote vases but not to many with this much going on. The outside has brown Cypriote texture almost like lava. The vase has a very strong iridescent with king-tut pulled tooling design. The photos don't do enough to show this vase true level of beauty. Once you get into more colors and design the Skys the limit. These do not come up for sale often so when they do people fight over them.
The issues with the vase does effect it but my asking price if you know your glass and the market is very fair. Lets not waste each others time. If you can find another Tiffany Cypriote this size. With the same caliper of color / design for my asking price or cheaper with no flaws. Ill give you this one for free.Happy to answer all questions. Signed - LCT Favrile 1528G.
