    This vase measures 10" long x 4" wide x 3" high. It was made by the Sooner Glass Company of Spiro, OK which was owned by brothers Charles and Roy Sebo, active 1950s-1970s. A local thrift shop got two pieces of this from the same person and the other piece had the "Sooner Glass - Hand Made - USA" label on it. They were so similar that I have no doubt that they were from the same maker. Unfortunately, the other piece was broken. As many years as I have been collecting glass, and as common as this glass is, I have never owned a piece. I have been looking for a nice piece and recently passed up on a very nice swan dish in this same color, which I have regretted ever since. Finding this piece was welcomed.

    Here is some history of the Sooner Glass Company and "sooner glass", in general.

      Such distinctive glass, so good! Yes I am surprised this is your first Sooner Kevin, with your huge American glass collection. Well found.

      @jscott0363 - Thanks! It does kind of look like a lamp!

      @racer4four - Thanks it is a nice piece. I guess part of my reluctance has been that these are usually pretty large, delicate pieces, just the kind of stuff my cat likes to assault. Also, learning more about Arkansas and Oklahoma glass makers made it more interesting.

      Thanks for loving my Sooner Glass!
