Three vases in the dreaded "cased peloton" decor - from left to right in the first picture, they stand 8" (20.3 cm), 9 7/8" (25 cm), and 10" (25.3 cm) tall.
My collection is small and my knowledge is shallow compared to several of the folks here in this CW group and I am aware that there has been some contention over this decor. Pictures of it (here) have all but disappeared so I thought it should be shown. I'd also like to add a couple other thoughts. First, I think "cased peloton" (thank you jericho) is a far better description than simply "peloton". To my mind, glass called "peloton" has a very tactile surface. Second (and possibly a novel thought), I look at these three vases and I see a very similar decor by two different makers. There is a noticeable difference in the application of the "strings" between the first two vases and the third. Is it possible that this decor was made by more than one glass house?
