    I bought this solely for its shape. Prior to this I had thought that the only examples of this shape were ribbed and made by Welz. Obviously I was one way or another.....or probably completely!!!

    The iridescence, on clear glass, is on the vase itself and blue and pink on the ball feet. Once again photography has enhanced the iridescence. It's really only big enough for a single bloom, and a small one at that.

    Moonstonelover21 has identified this vase as Harrach.

    Height 14 cm./5.5 inches

      Gosh, Lee, I am stunned.....but very happy. Thank you very much.

      I agree SEAN, and probably quite rare.....thanks for troubling to comment!

      As far as I am aware, Welz only did hollow feet that were ribbed. More commonly with a ribbed tri-balled configuration, but occasionally with a 4 ball stack like this.

      The pink example bottom row in the following pic is one of only a few I have seen in this configuration. The pink example is in my personal collection.

      Great vase.... I like these.....
    6. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Hmmmm, Craig, this one I bought for a bit of a fun price too! Three times I've decided against bidding on Welz of them is bottom left in your link! Niggles me now....

      If collecting for a long time has taught me nothing else, it has taught me that almost everything comes along again...... sometimes quickly.... sometimes years later..... but almost without exception they will come along again..... :-)

      I am coming round to believing you, you know :-)

      It's a bubble vase. I loved these when I first saw them here, and you have one. Yay!
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      And what's more, Karen, when I went to Moonstonelover's link I found I had 'loved' her vase.....then totally forgotten it!
    12. glassmadshaz glassmadshaz, 6 years ago
      very unusual like things that are different :)
    13. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 6 years ago
      I thought I'd seen this here before. Very nice Peggy. Love that you forgot you'd seen it, I've done that too, but not this time, I guess this vase stuck in my mind.
    14. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Hi Fran, it gets worse! As both Karen and you remember this shape I went looking for it and found a post by Alfredo with a four ball base. And yes I'd 'loved' that too!
    15. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 6 years ago
      I love this three-footed shape, Peggy! The finish on these types of vases is Harrach's 'Iris Glatt Crystal' - a beautiful iridescence with blues and pinks. I recently added a vase to my collection (with one ball foot, only, though) - I'll post it so you can see it, too. :)
