I have been waiting to obtain this vase ever since I saw it in the collection of Mr. David Littlefield. We were recently able to arrange an agreement that would allow me to add it into my collection.
I have included some of the information I was able to dig up on the artist Igor Muller. Although my pictures have alot to be desired, I love the red color and the irredesence in the oil spots that are also in the glass of the vase. I have been able to locate another of these shell vases so I know of at least one other decor this was made in. Unfortunatly unless I win the lottery I will not be able to afford the other one for sale.
THANK YOU DAVE FOR THE AWESOME VASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
