I bought this 11" flower on a hunch, knowing full well I really had no idea of its provenance. As I examined it, I was astonished by the workmanship. First, the scalloped foot, separated by the flower by a donut, so the beginning of the spiral is separate but rests on it (Pic. 2). Then, a sort of inner lining that not go all the way down the stem (P.3). And finally in the center of the bottom, a perfectly shaped glass "pearl" (Pic. 4)!
The glass itself is very heavy and shows no marks of being "pressed glass".
Whoever made it, it is a superb piece of glass.
