This is a tall bowl/vase of flaring quadrilateral shape with a relief design of heavy swags. Its colour is amethyst though they looked to have been short of colourant on the day. Not unusual when even the minutiae of the glassworks were in the hands of the central bureaucracy put in place by the colonial power.
I did once own this shape in turquoise, two sides glossy and two sides satin. That one was the vase version with its own turquoise glossy glass frog.
At the rim 22x22 cm. Height 10.5 cm.
