    This is an elegant, tall, iridescent green glass vase in an art nouveau style. It stands over 32 centimeters high (12+ inches), has a compressed footed body, and an elongated tapering neck. The top rim has an unusual shape, flaring out and then in, and the very top is polished where it was cut (not shown). On the outside the piece is rounded, but internally it is faceted, as shown in the third picture. The bottom shows some scratches of wear over time, but there is no discernible pontil mark.

    Any idea of possible maker and/or period?

      Someone here can help you...
      In the meantime, this is so beautiful and unique, the shape, the color, and the iridescent hue, a perfect mixture.

      Ms. CrystalShip, thank you for your comment! When it comes to art glass, we are definitely reliant on the expertise of others!

      Just saw a somewhat similar vase listed on ebay, as "Art Nouveau glass vase to 1900 Loetz. Iridescent." See: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Art-Nouveau-Glass-Vase-um-1900-Loetz-Vase/282936185958?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D29eb603acdea4983b3f08d01e29d77d9%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D282936185958%26itm%3D282936185958%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Ad1d17b0d-f4e7-11e9-a645-74dbd180136e%7Cparentrq%3Af444c4ce16d0a9e4c8293651fffd5a94%7Ciid%3A1

      Another vase with similar footed base and elongated neck. Top is different, though, as is finish, ground, and casing: https://scottishantiques.com/loetz-papillon

      Another vase on ebay with similar base, color, and iridescence: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Art-Nouveau-Vase-um-1900-Loetz-/274059250652?hash=item3fcf344bdc

      You really should avoid selling sites as a research source to identify glass. Although both of those ebay pieces are being offered as Loetz, neither of them are Loetz.
    7. aesthete1880 aesthete1880, 3 years ago
      welzebub, thanks, just trying to find similar examples (not assuming the attributions are correct) and did not locate any similar pieces on the research site: https://www.loetz.com/ ...which of course suggests "not Loetz". Hoping one of the many incredible glass experts on Collectors Weekly might have some insight on the above piece.
    8. welzebub, 3 years ago
      plain green iridescent pieces are among the hardest to identify unless the shape is known to come from a specific glass house.
    9. aesthete1880 aesthete1880, 3 years ago
      welzebub, thanks again, that makes total sense. We bought it because we liked it, but of course want to learn more if we can.
    10. welzebub, 3 years ago
      My pleasure. I am glad to help when I can.
    11. truthordare truthordare, 3 years ago
      good luck with your research!
    12. aesthete1880 aesthete1880, 3 years ago
      Thanks all, eventually we will get there!
