    Please do not adjust your screen - the colors are real! I've never seen such deep iridescence on a silberiris vase. This is a really special piece. In addition to the intense blue, pink, and purple iridescence, a red inlaid leaf pattern repeats three times around the body (each leaf cluster is a little different). The vines wrap around and down to the base. I say similar to PN II-1585 because while the shape is the same, this vase is taller than the one in the paper pattern - it's a solid 8" (20.4 cm) tall.

    I have seen two or three other pieces in this marquetry type decor, but they were all much smaller than this one. I haven't unearthed the name or number of this decor (yet), but those are just details...
