    This example stands about 7" tall by 6.5" wide. The typical Loetz Rusticana décor with bumps and knots similar to tree bark has been puffed out by the artisan to create the effect of a large lime gumdrop :-) The rim is polished. The base features an exceptionally nicely finished pontil, and the sides have been crushed inward in four places. The surface iridescence is a wonderful blend of purples and golds which can be clearly seen in the fourth photo, and like most Loetxz Rusticana, the uranium in the glass makes it glow under UV light. c. 1899.

      Wow, it is a big one, Bob! I love your gumdrop description, too. :) I always like the Rusticanas with indentations like this.

      I'm not the biggest fan of green Bob, but I love the shape with its bumps, lumps pinches etc!

      Thank goodness the iridescence isn't green Rick :-) Bob
