MCCOY'S FLOWER FORM VASES ARE SO PRETTY! THIS ONE IS THE CHRYSANTHEMUM AND IS IN THE PRETTY LILAC COLOR. HAS WONDERFUL COLOR, AND WAS EARLY FROM THE MOLD AS DETAILS ARE CRISP AND PRECISE! VASE HAS NO CRACKS OR CRAZING BUT IS NOT WITHOUT PROBLEMS. IT HAS ONE BROKEN LEAF POINT AND HAS SUSTAINED A 3/8" X 3/8" SLICE TYPE CHIP ON FLOWER AT A SIDE MOLD SEAM. PREVIOUS OWNER PUT SOME GREEN COLOR ON THE BROKEN LEAF TIP -- DEBATABLE BUT I WOULD HAVE LEFT IT ALONE. THEN THEY PUT GREEN COLOR ON THE SLICE TYPE CHIP! APPEARS TO BE MARKER, NOT PAINT AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL REMOVE. BOTH OF THESE DAMAGED PLACES COULD BE EASILY REPAIRED OR JUST ENJOYED AS IS. VASE DISPLAYS BEAUTIFULLY AND I REALLY SHOULDN'T BE SO HARD ON THE PRIOR OWNER. VASE LOOKS NEW AND WAS OBVIOUSLY HIGHLY PRIZED, I'M CERTAIN THEY WERE HEART BROKEN WHEN IT WAS DAMAGED. IT'S A BEAUTIFUL ITEM!
