This is such a pretty little vase that features quail and flowers in a wild setting. Definition is accomplished via the gilded borders and scene color outlines. The vase is six inches tall and in excellent condition free of chips or cracks. The gilding, which is the most fragile of any decorated piece, is about 98% present.
