    This is one of those shape/decor combinations that emphasizes the fluidity of glass as a decorative medium, and I love it. It seems like a fairly difficult thing to make, between the hand tooled handles pulled from the rim, and the green "Behänge", or "hangings" that are pulled up from the bottom. I imagine the process to be something similar to a chocolate dipped ice cream cone - take something cool, and make it cooler by giving it an extra dip. :) Of course, the unusual shape is another matter - my friend Andy says it looks like an impatient wife (perhaps fed up with her husband's obsession with glass), but if this object is to be anthropomorphized, I see a vase with a bouffant cut :) It stands about 7.5" tall.

      The organic shape looks like a presentiment of the later well known Holubetz design, congratulation.
