    Please help me identify this Opalescent Swung Glass Vase
    I can't pinpoint the maker. Never saw one with this much intricate work on the bottom.
    I couldn't find a Fenton or Westmoreland vase with these characteristics.
    Size: 10" Tall X 4" Wide
    Thanks for any information.

      looks to be 'Piasa Bird' (pronounced pie-a-saw); a Native American legend. The maker is unknown; tho' some "experts" think American due the legend and manner of how the opalescence is made, while others attribute to Sowerby. There are several shapes and colors for this pattern. My thoughts are since most of these are seen on the American market that would lend to American attribution as well. Examples of forms and colors here:

      Thank you TallCakes. You are so right. I never heard of this type of class.
      That is totally a Piasa Bird piece.
      Thanks again and take care.
