This is one of the more unusual glass hand vases in my collection. It is made from 3 layers of cased glass - clear over white with an interior of green aventurine. There is also an applied golden yellow crest on the double crimped rim. I got this on eBay, the seller was in the Czech Republic. Hand vases were made by many manufacturers, I am not certain of the maker of this piece, but as hand vases go, it is a very high quality piece. The typical glass hand vase is usually made of a single layer of either white or turquoise blue opaque "milk" glass. Cased hand vases are harder to find, & this is the only example I have seen with green aventurine.
