Overall in very good condition. The sculptural glass surfaces present with great variety of surface treatments and geometric forms that are typical of Colotte’s practice as a glassmaker. The glass with scattered faint surface scratches, scuffing and abrasions concentrated to the edges and relief decorations and consistent with gentle handling. The glass body with stable occasional hairlines, some possibly inherent to production, the largest measuring approximately 5 inches long. The edge of one relief element with a small chip to the glass measuring approximately 1/2 inch long, possibly caused by the previously mentioned hairline. The marble base presents with light scratches and abrasions throughout consistent with gentle handling. One corner with a chip to the marble measuring approximately 1 3/4 inch wide which has been professionally reattached to the base and is stable overall. The same corner with an area of loss to the marble measuring approximately 3/4 inch.
