I found this at the family farmhouse in Southcoast Mass. It was in the back of a closet with unused wedding gifts belonging to my aunt and uncle who were married in the mid 1950's. I'm assuming it is some sort of carnival glass due to the irridencence. I cannot find any maker's mark on it. It stands 13 inches tall, the base is 4 inches across. The stem is only 1/2 wide and looks to be hardpressed to put 1 stem of a flower in there, especially since the stem is not straight but bent. The fluted top is 7 inches across at the widest point.
I thought perhaps it could have been made by Pairpoint, since they are closeby but they never produced any kind of carnival glass that I can find.

    Not carnival glass.
    This shape of vase is called "Jack in the Pulpit" and the glass could have been produced by any number of Art Glass manufactures of the time. Tiffany's Favrile would have been the most expensive, valuable, Quezal could be another maker with their Opalescent glass. Other makers gave this type of glass manes like Opal and Lustre glass.
    It's not unusual to find pieces unmarked, as some had a paper label on the bottom that came off easily. A knowledgeable dealer should be able to ID your vase, it's just not something I could do from photos.
