Won after some rather serious bidding, this Rindskopf vase is another new arrival. This type of glass does not seem to turn up for sale often within Australia, & when it does, the competition is fierce.
It is made from three layers of glass, with a lavish marbled decor in cool, bluish green & white, & has an applied "snake" which has a metallic grey appearance, almost like pewter. Of impressive size, the vase measures 24 cm tall, 4.5 cm across the cut & polished top rim, & 9 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
There is a light iridescence to the vase, more intense on the "snake".
Very pleased to welcome this fine piece into my collection!
