    I just love the floral motif on this Legras vase; I believe it is of Clematis, based on the flowers and on the twining tendrils, and there is a hint of garden lattice in the background. It is quite large, at 10.75" tall, and has a fire-polished rim but no pontil mark. I think the delicate whites and pinks against the green glass make this vase a favorite of mine. I believe it dates to about 1890-1900.

      glassiegirl, yes, I believe it is the same shape - thanks for sharing it! This is an excellent example of why the old attributions of this style of glass to 'Roessler' are incorrect, in my opinion. The amber-yellow glass color is also seen in other Legras pieces; you can see an example of mine here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/175702-legras-amber-enameled-vase-with-witch-ha?in=user
