A beautiful vase that looks like raindrops to me!
Made from colourless pressed glass it has been made in an elliptical shape. Covered in bumps that grow in size toward the middle of the vase.
It has a "birdbath" type base, but my feeling is this is not Czech, more likely German or Scandi. The bumps exist even inside the birdbath. Slight mould lines along the edges, hot finished rim, ground around the base.
Height 140mm (5.5in) width 160mm (6.25in)
