This is the vase that started my interest in Victorian Art Glass.
I saw it at an antique store while I was on vacation, but I didn't know anything about art glass. I didn't buy it that day, but I did get the sellers contact information.
After returning from the vacation, I did some research and decided the price was reasonable. So I contacted the store owner, mailed a check, and they shipped it to me. 17 years and about a hundred pieces later, it is still one of my favorites!
The vase measures about 8 3/4" tall and is 2 1/2" at the top and 3 1/2" at the base. The base has a ground pontil and it is in excellent condition to include all of the "barbs" on the sides.
