01.09.24: In my opinion regarding LOT 1268: I note that the figure is intact and sits comfortably in the accompanying stand, there are natural inclusions and inherent areas of natural porosity throughout, I observe minute chips to the petals of several flowers, and the thin ribbon at the lower central region of the body seems to have been reinforced with visible adhesive but I do not observe a fracture, and there is a minor glue repair to the top right auspicious cloud formation
