This "winged" or "v" shaped vase by Vannes le Châtel is one of my favourites despite being one of the most common. This vase is 2538g, 30cm in height and 54cm wing-tip to wing-tip. It is a very striking piece, especially when lit from below.
My house was a photographers shop from the turn of the century until the 1950's and still retains the original 1930's wooden and glass display cabinets, I am currently trying to figure out how to light my glass from below (with single LED's) without damaging the units. When complete I should be able to display around 24 of my larger pieces. I can then build a custom shelving unit for the others, leaving plenty of space for future acquisitions! Regards William.

    I hope we get to see when you do...sounds wonderful...I think 'winged' is much nicer than 'V' sounds soft and flowing where the 'V' sounds sharp and stright....:-)
