This Rindskopf vase dates to before WWI. It stands 12+ inches tall and is about 4" wide. The deep transparent ruby red base glass has a crackled surface to which has been applied an opaque silvery blue iridescent layer. The shape flares inward at the bottom and outward at the top. The middle has been tortured, and worked with several folds. The top rim is ground and the base shows no pontil mark. When properly lit, direct light illuminates the transparent red from within, and reflected light makes the iridescence sparkle from without.
