Elaborately decorated QUEZAL Art Glass vase. A gold iridescent fishnet decoration ending in a repeating hook motif flows around the mid-section over an opal background further decorated with a repeating green iridescent hooked feather motif draping from the top and covered with a gold iridescent zig-zag decoration. The gold iridescent top flows downward forming repeating petals and with a gold iridescent interior opening.
Engraved on a polished concave pontil: QUEZAL E 16

    JJZ......the MB in the pontil doesn't happen to stand for Martin Bach does it ??

    I am continually amazed at the quality of the decoration. Thanks again for sharing.

    FWF, you are very astute!!! The pontil photo is very special and unique. The vase it is on is the Memorial Vase that was given to the daughter of Martin Bach, Sr. at his funeral service in 1921. It has the most elaborate "silver signature" that I have ever seen: M B 1921. I acquired it directly from the family many years ago and it has never been shown...Thanks, JJZ
