This vase measures 6.5" high x 5.5" wide x 5.5" deep. It has a bit of a wobble to it. My first impression when I picked it up was Blenko because of the color and just because. Then I saw the pontil and thought it looked a bit rough for a Blenko piece, but when I got home and did some research, I found that both Blenko Art Glass and Rainbow Art Glass made this vase in the 1950s. It is often described as an MCM vase. I haven't found any examples yet, though, of either maker making all of the extra dimples that this vase has, but still feel that it is probably by one or the other maker. The second image is the true color but the other three are not far off. Calling it Blenko, but leaving it a mystery in case I find more information or else someone disagrees. Pilgrim Glass also made these vases but they had a distinctive "strawberry" pontil mark, which this piece definitely does not have.
