Alfredo

IT ALWAYS HAPPENS: JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE FOUND ALL OF THE POSSIBLE SHAPES OF A TYPE, A NEW ONE COMES OUT OF THE BLUE. I HAVE OVER TWO DOZEN THORN VASES IN AT LEAST 10 SHAPES, BT NOT THE ONE I JUST BOUGHT.

MADE OUT OF A SINGLE TUBE OF CLEAR CLASS WITH CINNAMON RUST SPOTTING AND AN OUTER LAYER OF VASELINE GLASS, THEN FOLDING INTO 3 CONCENTRIC "DOUGHNUTS" AND FINALLY WINDING AROUND ITSELF. APPLIED VASELINE FOOT . 8" TALL, UNMARKED. QUITE A BIT OF WORK FOR A CZECH DECO EXPORT PIECE.

THE LAST PHOTO SHOWS A COMPARISON WITH A LARGER 12" VERSION, WHERE THE TUBE WINDS AROUND ITSELF BUT DOES NOT HAVE TWO PARALEL COLUMNS.

    The previous owner had asked me to identify it . . . and one thing led to the other . . .
