    I think this is American, but it could be Bohemian. I found an almost identical one sold as "Elegant Glass Era" US circa 1930, but with the typical colors reversed. It's 11" tall, 4.75" base dia., and 7.25" rim dia. The rim has about 30 crimps, which, when combined with the spiral optic pattern, displays some gorgeous reflections. The base has a ground pontil scar. Do y'all have any guesses?

      Very pretty! Is it called Watermelon because of the color? When I look at it, a purple onion comes to mind.
      (And I just came inside from being in my garden picking a watermelon, believe it or not!! I didn’t see anything like that....lol!)
