    Found in grimy condition at a local thrift for 15 bucks! Washed it up and it is simply gorgeous! Vase is 12 inches tall and 22 inches around widest point. Correspondingly weight appropriate. Color ranges from a clear deep pink at ruffled and crimped top to a glorious peach at base. In bright light, the glass gives off rainbow prisms of sparkle. Four 'draped' panels with cascading drops and still more design at neck. Bottom is very smooth, glass and seams, while present, are very smooth as well. A few bubbles are present. This reminds me of a Victorian theater stage. I think it might be rare Fenton.

      Thanks for the link. This vase is completely smooth on bottom, no pontil mark at all, no hint of one even if buffed. And no makers mark. I'll post a pic of bottom.
