Some years back, Belleverre posted an example of this vase. I literally flipped over it, and when this one came up recently, I had to have it. It's by Quezal, and I was told circa 1915. I'm not familiar with the mark (Quezal with a fancy scroll beneath), so I can't be sure. It's a nice size measuring 12" tall and has a yellow opal base. It's decorated with a pulled feather design with ten, applied, gold iridescent tadpoles which run the length of the vase ending at the base. Any help as to the age would be appreciated. As always, thanks for looking!
