Extremely rare and highly unusual KEW BLAS Art Glass vase decorated with a gold iridescent pulled hook feather over a matte gun metal grey/green body with visible bump surface caused by large mica flakes mixed in the transparent green base glass topped with a ruffled opening and the interior fumed with a dense platinum stretch iridescence.
Engraved on a concave polished pontil: KEW BLAS

    LoetzBuddies, many years ago this vase was placed in my hands via a collection that had arrived from Argentina...I immediately acquired it...in 35 years of collecting I have never seen or held anything like it again...it is the only Kew Blas in my collection...FWF, the rest are all yours!

    JJZ : you will be very proud of me as I am donating one of my Kew Blas vases to the new New Bedford (Mass.) Museum of Glass.

    FWF: This kind of benevolent action will keep you in good favor with the Art Glass Gods.....
