Off - beat, oddball pieces of art glass never fail to seize my attention.
This intriguing vase is no exception - I've never seen anything like this shape before.
It measures 14.3 cm tall, around 4 cm across the widest part of the semi - circular top rim, & 5 cm across the circular base.
Made from what appears to be three layers of cased glass, it is a pale, muted yellow green (really livens up under UV light) with a bottom up spatter in a light orange. It has a subtle iridescence & smooth satin finish.
The shape is what makes it special - there's something vaguely industrial about it, sort of a cross between a factory's chimney stack & a submarine rising from the depths. Is weird, is good!
It's got to be Bohemian...Rindskopf? Pallme Koenig? Or?
