The vase is 12" tall and 5'' round
The leaves are pressed and the flowers are wheel cut.
The base has a 8 point star pressed in the bottom.
The top is scalloped with some parts smooth and some parts ridged.
It looks like crystal but think it is pressed glass. it has two seams one on each side.
It looks like a us glass pattern "flowers & butterflys"I cant find any info on it I would love to know anything about it.
History:
My 90 year old grandma got it when she was 40, from a 80 year old friend, that said it belonged to her grandmother. They were in northern Ohio when the vase was exchanged.

    I have a vase very much like this and I have always wondered about it. I bought it from a house of nuns in Pennsylvania. Mine is cloudy from minerals in water, but still very pretty.

    My grandma lived real close to Pennsylvania. I think it is, the prettyest vase I have ever seen, looks a lot like led crystal. I found a bowl that looks alot like it on line it is from US Glass from Pennsylvania circa 1919.

    I looked closer at my vase & it is exactly same as yours.
    Yes, it is VERY heavy!
    My vase must have been used a lot & is a bit chipped, but it is so pretty, I was hoping to remove the cloudy-ness out of it, the Nuns said it just needed rinsed out....But...I tried that & when it dries it gets cloudy all over again.
    Thank-you for your comment about US Glass!

    try CLR or something for lime or hard water stains, like used on coffie pots or shower heads.
