My Loetz marmoriertes glass 'gi-gantor' vase.
Are you aloud to call something 'monumental' when it isn't over 13 inches or taller?..because in my world of vases this vase most! definitely is...
A 'milky marble'...with smokey light brown to dark chocolate swirls.
It is the shape and just about the size of a rugby ball weighing in at.. just!! under... 4.4 lbs or two kilos...
7 inches tall
10.1/2 in diameter
7.1/2 inches wide
The detail on the gilt metal collar around the rim is simple but! elegant, the mount it sits in is lovely and makes up for it with more detail. The acanthus leaves feet splay out and look as if they are really! struggling with the weight of it all!...
Everything about it is perfect and it is a fabulous thing..I love it!! and am thrilled to have, I can't wait to be able to place it and give it pride of place in my new home!
I have had this vase now for quite a while but! and I would like thank a good friend who with out their help meant! I saved paying an absorbent amount of shipping ...thank you!!...;-)
Sorry! about the reflection seen on the surface...and thank you for looking!
