I took a chance on this vase, uncertain of its origins. The seller didn't provide any useful information about it (not even the size!) but it was cheap, & looked kind of interesting. I like square vases & this one also has a striking twist to it.
It is made from a single layer of amethyst glass (looks a bit more purple in person, & was difficult to photograph). Measuring 20.2 cm tall, 6.5 cm across the top rim, & 9.9 cm across the base, it is quite heavy for its size. There is a satiny, iridescent finish with a subtle crackle effect all over the vase, though it is glossy inside. It is substantial & well - finished. No markings or signature.
It would have originally had a sticker underneath - Silvestri Mouth Blown Glass...made in Taiwan.
