Found this beautiful "Jozefina" multi colored ruffle or handkerchief vase at GW this morning. It's made in Krosno Poland. I have one of their clear vases as well which I posted a while back.(http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/88466-incredible-krosno-bubble-bottom-vase-f) At first I thought it might be Italian but it still has it's original label. It's an impressive 15" tall and the interior is cased in pure white glass. The exterior is kind of a "mille fiori" pattern but I've seen it described as a "Picasso" vase too. There is just the "teenie tiniest" area of roughness on one of the ruffles. You can't see it but you can feel it with your finger. After the drought of selection at the thrifts the last few weeks I didn't mind paying a bit more than usual for it. -Mike-
