This is a large vase made from an amethyst black glass in a clear case with a clear foot.
The shape is from a mould, with ribs running from the foot through the body to the lip. The lip has been hot rolled.
The body of the vase and the inner lip have been heavily iridised, and some slight iridisation has over run to parts of the foot.
It shines an intense mix of blues and purples and gold, a colouring similar to carnival glass.
I tentatively date this to late 1970s.
