Hi,
this is an unostentatious vase with a very nice mounting,which makes it more graceful. The metal under the layer of patina shines gold suggesting bronze or brass? I tried to clean it,but it's not so easy and I was afraid of breaking the vase. The glass is UV reactive,but my photo abilities aren't enough to take a good picture.
I also guess that the top was different,as the rim is cut.This makes visible two layers of glass which are rough .
The vase is 22cms tall.
I'd like to share this old "handicaped" piece,as I think it deserves some attention after its long life :-)

    I wouldn't try to clean the brass around your vase. It adds a beautiful finish to the vase. At first sight, I believed the brass to be colored green. It's possible that the vase is made of uranium glass and that explains why it reacts to UV light.

    Yes,Robin,that's why I gave up.It looks painted green really and matches the greenish of glass.

    Nice Art Nouveau vase. The patina of the metal looks great the way it is, DON'T clean it.
