Overall in very good condition. The two vases present with beautifully executed and colorful decorations that include pointillist and floral motifs characteristic of the firm. The glazing and porcelain surface present with very minor irregularities that are inherent to production and contribute to the charm of the works. The vase with purple flowers (pictured on the left in the catalogue illustration) has a ½ x ¼ in. area of restoration to the rim. The vase with blue flowers (pictured on the right in the catalogue illustration) has a very shallow, very minor ¼ in. area of restoration to the rim edge. The glaze on both vases is finely crazed.
