    This is a wonderful example of a Imperial Freehand vase that has a fake Loetz Austria signed piece. This was originally made as a vase that was made into a lamp base. Which was a very common occurance. This beauty stands about 10.5" tall and has the most wonderful decor and classic shape to it. I found this in a box amongst other crazy glass from my collector friend. And yes this does have rim chips from the original brass fitter. Thanks for looking
    Btw. My friend wanted to keep it to chisel the rim down to take off the rim chips with his hand drill. Yikes!

      Ouch for the chisel part! It would have ruined the proportions, best to do to hide the white chips would be to find a matching orange nail polish and apply with a thin brush. So nothing harmful for the vase ;-)

      Moon : not's Imperial. Either Free Hand or Lead Lustre.
      Go to IMPERIALARTGLASS.COM and you will find it.

      Frank is correct - this is Imperial Free Hand.

      Grand color and design…….!

      Examples such as this started with a blue decoration (leaf & vine in this instance) on a white ground - then they were sprayed with "orange iridescence" - with the amount of orange applied determining the final color - see the photo of four vases under "Drag Loop" here:
