In a previous article on Carl Goldberg, I featured a cut-to-clear piece in a similar shape and said that Goldberg must have had a fascination with production techniques, as their output was so varied. Here is yet another treatment - acid cut back design, lightly stained in various colors to support an aquatic theme, with a red stained ornamental rim. Marked on the bottom with a C inside a G, the mark of Carl Goldberg, according to the Glasmarken Lexicon by Carolus Hartmann (see last photo scan). Highly stylized aquatic life motif is repeated three times around the body of this vase. About 7.25" tall, weighs nearly a full kilo.
