I just acquired this rather tall (30 cm) cased glass vase with a deep orange/red mottled bottom half pulled into a top half that is green aventurine in a field of dark amethyst - the second of this type that I have found. I also have one with pink mottling on the bottom, but they have in common that the green aventurine in the top half is blended into a field of deep amethyst glass (the second image is looking inside the neck of the tall vase with a strong light source behind). Both pieces are rather heavy, and the tallest of the two has a partial circular export? stamp (F/O/O Czecho-Slovakia). These are both very fine pieces that took great skill to make. If anyone else has pieces of this type, I would like to begin compiling images in the hopes of ultimately determining who made this exceptional glass.
