This diminutive vase stands just 3.5" tall and is about 2" in diameter at the widest point. The shape is similar to the Hurricane glass - a familiar sight at Pat O'Brien's in New Orleans. The amber base glass has a heavy metallic oxide iridescence and a mother of pearl like sheen. The pontil is finished and unusual for WMF, there are the letters M.F. engraved in the polished pontil mark. It was made c. 1930.
