Keeping it local has been doing wonders for my collection in recent times. This is another fab find from eBay AU, with only one other bidder in the running.
This is an Art Nouveau era vase, made from two layers of cased glass. The inner layer is milky opalescent, overlaid by a clear layer with purple threading & intense, pinkish toned iridescence. It measures 18.5 cm tall, 6 am across the cut top rim, & 6 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
The condition is not perfect - in fact the top rim has so many chips that it looks like it was chewed, but it bothers me not. The price was reasonable & the vase is very beautiful in person despite the issues. Perhaps I will look into having the top reground, eventually.
I think possibly by Kralik? The overlapping vertical & horizontal threading looks like their version of the "Pampas" decor...
