Today's rather nice op shop find was this Czech Tango glass vase in an intense shade of orange.
It measures 20 cm tall, 10.7 cm across the top rim, & 7.5 cm across the base.
It displays a classic form for this type of vase, the flared out "trumpet" with a loosely crimped top rim edged with a black crest.
The truncated conical footed base is a bit different, though. The other examples I have of this shape have a rounded foot that is like a squashed doughnut rather than this straight - sided example.
No markings (typical of Tango glass found in Australia) but plenty of age related "shelf wear" on the base.
1920s - 1930s era, made in Czechoslovakia.
