    I have always been attracted to unusual/strange glass items and this pitcher/handled vase fits the bill. It has a lot of age base wear so it has been around a long time. It has a clear outer layer, a brown and yellow spatter colour and an inner lime-yellow layer along with a clear applied royal blue handle. It measures 9 3/8" tall, 4 1/2" wide at the mouth and has a 3" wide base. The rim has been crimped while molten to create the "frog" mouth opening. It's probably a vase since as a pitcher it would be quite difficult to clean. It has a recessed polished under-base and no markings. Anyone recognize this strange item? Thanks, BOB
    **Saw shorter Tango Posy vases uploaded in CW so I'm pretty sure that it could be Bohemian.

      Hi, Loumanal, this link may be a start.

      The shapes are shorter but the crimped top and handle is much the same on one of them. Also I think some one once posted a taller version of one of these shapes.

      Thanks for the link sklo42! I noticed a comment by IanBrighton a CW member that some of the shown vases were taller in a pitcher size form so this one could very well be a Czech product....the blue handles are identical to this one.
      Thank you also SpiritBear, swfinluv1, czechglass5, vetraio50 and artfoot for the loves, BOB

      I just recognized this exact vase in the first catalog right . Thanks czechglass5! We at least know that it dates 1930 and is certainly Bohemian. Bob
