A welcome addition to my collection is this absolutely sunning Harrach Atlas Glass vase .
My photos could never do it justice , the satin glass surface has an iridescent sheen .
Milk glass inner layer is covered in a green glass layer that is deeper at the top and and shades to almost clear at the base in between this is an air trapped layer of circular bubbles that have been stretched towards the top when the glass has been hand shaped . .
An added bonus is that there is stamp on the polished pontil the Harrach three feather mark .
Gorgeously hand painted and gilt! with floral sprays ...
At 11 " tall and 6 3/4 " in diameter it has a presence all on it's own .
Together with my good friend inky's example it does prove that Harrach made it to the bottom of the world .
