I have always loved cobalt glass, and I have also always loved feathered glass. Iridescent glass is at the top of my list. In this vase, Rindskopf managed to incorporate all three of my favorite stylistic cues into a single object! (you can click the pictures for a larger view)
The vase stands 12.5" tall and is about 5" in diameter at the widest. Colorful feathers are pulled through the deep cobalt blue base glass. The pontil is polished and the rim is ground. The walls are thick and the vase is very heavy. The shape is very modernistic considering that it is a hundred or so years old. Best of all, the surface shimmers in an iridescent rainbow of color. c. 1900-1915. I searched a long time for one of these... so glad I found it!
