    Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik began as a metal works in the late 19th century. They introduced the Myra Kristall line designed by Karl Wiedmann around 1926. Production of art glass ceased at WMF in 1936 and did not resume until after the war, though Myra production did not resume. It was only made during that ten year period. In 1984, WMF's production of glass was discontinued.

    This small vase is only 4 inches tall and features a beautiful polished pontil. The design can easily be mistaken for Steuben Aurene. Myra Kristall is usually unmarked. It exhibits a high level of craftsmanship and finish. The base glass is a deep amber color, and the surface is usually a metallic gold. The metal oxide iridescence is full of green, blue, purple and red highlights.
