    I was, apparently, rapt when looking at this today. An apparently simple cranberry lobed and ribbed form has hundreds of tiny "lenses" as part of the mould, giving an almost chine appearance, without the application of threading.
    A "collar" of clear glass has been alternately pulled up into inverted "v"s and down into thorny teardrops that arch out over the body of the urn.
    The feet and neck are pretty beat up, but this was so unusual that I had to turn back at the shop door.
    I *think* all the above point to Bohemia, but if I find out it's from anywhere else, I won't be disappointed.
    It is 11.8cm high and has 8 lobes.
