This is the very first time that I come across one single piece of Czech Deco glass combining so many techniques. 7.5"/18.5 cm tall. The lower part is covered in yellow, orange and red spots. The middle part has a very realistic enameling of fruits and leaves (I'd say, almost tridimensional). The top has a a 1" hammered metal collar. The glass, which looks black but in reality is deep red, has a matte finish we call "satin". And the bottom has a paper label! If you look at the top, you will notice the vase was enameled to the rim and then fitted with the metal collar. Unfortunately, WW2 would put a definitive end to this type of Czech glass production.

    Correction. When I looked down the vase, what I saw was the red spot smack in the middle of the bottom, where the label is. That label has been taped for safety! In reality, no light penetrates the walls of the vase. Forgot to point out the vase shows a very thing layer of casing, only visible on the foot.

    By the way, I am almost sure the fruits are oversized gooseberries.
