This is a really interesting & unusual vase that I got yesterday...as soon as I walked into the shop, I grabbed it!
It just spoke to me, even though it isn't the Victorian glass I usually go for...what attracted me was the fact I'd not seen anything quite like it before, in four decades of collecting & looking at art glass. It's also weird, but in a good way.
The vase is made from two layers of cased glass in a sort of milky off - white shade. There is bottom - up spatter in a neon - bright lime green, & rather casually applied pulled loop trailing in bright orange.
The vase is a simple shape, & measures 18 cm tall, 6 cm across the cut & polished top rim, & 5.3 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
I think this is most likely of Bohemian origin, & probably from the Art Deco era.
After having looked at a lot of images of Kralik's Wave decor, I think it may be an example, though I have not seen anything with this exact colour combination.
