I found this vase at a church sale this weekend. Glass is usually not what I buy and collect but this one got my attention. The rim needs a bit more polishing. It is not sterling but rather a different metal I can not identify. The design reminds me of art nouveau, and I would venture to say that it might be European, but I am no expert. The glass has an iridescent finish. The vase stands 12 inches tall.

Thanks for looking:)

    Thanks everyone! I must admit, I was hoping it was Kralik. The problem is that I have seen images on line but never have I seen one in reality.
    Once again, thanks a lot, Mac63, inky, czechman, and Moonstonelover21:)
