I think this is another Nortec-type copy, possibly made by LE Smith Glass in the 1990s or early 2000s. I can't find any attributions to Nortec, or any other maker, for this vase. I think that I bought it about 2002-3. The Hickman McKee vase was made 1890-1904. This vase measures about 12" high x 4.5" top x 4.75" bottom, made with a four part mold. The diamond points are so sharp you have to be a bit careful when handling it. There is a gray/white slag effect in the body of the vase. Not sure why some of my images came out a bit dark. This vase is snow white. The proportion of the base of the vase to the size of the vase is larger than normally seen on a vase. It is a Bigfoot vase. Everyone selling this vase on ebay claims it to be an original, so not sure about this one. I don't remember the circumstances when I bought it. Calling it a mystery in case someone knows its origins.
