There is a large restoration to one of the vases. It appears that there were two large pieces that were broken and reattached with one large crack radiating outwards from these two breaks. The radiating crack measures approx. 8 inches in length; the smallest break measures approx. 3 inches x 8 inches; the largest break measures approx. 6.5 inches x 8 inches. The blue color is slightly darker along the cracks. No cracks or chips to the other vase. Light wear throughout both vases consistent with age and use.
