In the 1900 BB catalog there appears an advertisement for a pair of strangely shaped Bohemian thorn vases (pic 1). I soon had several examples of the first shape. The second proved almost impossible to find. I found a photo of a similar but not identical one in a book of Victorian British design: it has a single opening, not two (picture 2). I finally found a single opening vase, combining elements of two shapes (pic.3). It consists of a single piece of glass, twisted in the characteristic "frog legs" shape, one end leading to the opening, and the second twisting into a graceful wrap-around tail, as it appears in the pink vase, the first I find with a spiral shape AND NO THORNS! (Pic. 4). By the way, this line also appears in 12" and even 13".
I'm still looking for a double opening frog legs vase. Please, help if you can!
