    This was one of her favorite pieces of glass. She always loved it. It’s only about 8 inches tall and 3 inches wide. It’s rather narrow at the top and somewhat 3 sided around. I did not do it any justice with my pictures but I always loved the iridescent look and it’s shape. I don’t see any markings on the bottom but then again I have never tried to clean it.

      This is a Bohemian glass bottle or vase, some had silver collars. I own 3 of these in the same green, they were produced in cranberry and yellow glass mostly. Decor texture is called 'drape'. thanks for posting.

      The vase was produced ca 1900-1910, and the most likely houses that may have produced it are Franz Welz, or Kralik.

      I appreciate your comments. I have always kept it in a glass case along with other items. I hope I can learn more about how to identify the maker as clearly I am no expert. She would be thrilled to know that people at CW loved her vase.

      This vase is made by Kralik on Drapery decor.
      A good article here for viewing and reading from good friend glass collector « Alfredo Villanueva Collado »This is beautiful example you got here, thanks for posting.

      For all the loves thank you to everyone! I was just typing this and our favorite song A Thousand Miles came on the radio. Made me feel so close to her if just for a moment..
