I am very happy to be able to share my newest vase - a Fritz Heckert vase in the recently identified 'Marmopal' decor. The base glass is a milky opalescent color, and it has irregular dark green and amber spotting on the exterior. (The smaller amber spots really are only visible when held up to the light.) It has a lovely silvery iridescence. Volkmar Schorcht has been doing a lot of great Heckert research, and identified this decor; some of the Heckert pieces have been identified with a shape number (for example, Th 217), but I do not know the number of this particular shape. This vase is 5-3/4" (14.6cm) tall, has a fire-polished rim, and a round highly-polished pontil. I really like this decor, and hope to be able to add more examples to my collection one day!
