This is an extremely rare & unusual double hand vase. It is made from a single layer of opaque white milk glass, & features two clasped hands - look closely & you'll notice that the two hands are slightly different in size, one is larger (I guess meant to be the man's hand) & the other smaller (the lady's hand). I have been collecting hand vases since 1995, & had actually stopped collecting for a few years (too much stuff!) but when I saw this, I "fell off the wagon"...
No markings, no idea of the maker but I am guessing Bohemian.
It measures 20 cm tall, 11 cm across the tightly crimped top rim, & 8 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark.
