This dainty vase is blown of colourless glass with iridescent hues. Hand painted with gold accents and white enameling. Rim is cut. The bottom of the base is entirely cut and beautifully polished. The base is a solid piece of glass which reacts under a UV light.
Iridescent decor is called Glatt Iris and is from Harrach.
Rim is 1-7/8"diameter and is the base is 1-1/2" diameter.
There are a few of the Glatt Iris (ball) vases floating around here on CW. Collector's like to refer to this decor as Soap Bubble which is not hard to figure out why. ;)
