    This vase stands 8 inches (20.3 cm) tall with a 4½" (13.4 cm) diameter at the widest point. It is a fairly thin blown white glass with a ruffled throat and applied colored-glass leaves, stem, and flower. The underside shows a deep and dirty pontil scar at the center of a ground finish. Interestingly, the blue leaves glow bright green under UV light. Probably Bohemian but I can't rule out other sources.

      Seems to be an applied flower fest going on lately!
      This is a really nice example...the blue leaf/amber stem combo is a little different as well.
      I think this vase of mine, though smaller, & of a different shape, may be by the same maker - it has the same blue leaf/amber stem, plus the flower has a similar form to yours, being that it has two layers of petals, with an opalescent spatter (though obviously in a different colour).

      Love it and enjoying the "flower fest"!

      Thank you Scott and Marin. I think you are correct that your vase and mine were likely made in the same place. Your vase probably glows all over and not just the leaves, I'm guessing.

      Funnily enough, mine doesn't glow at all, in any part!
      Many of these types of vases do contain uranium, but not all, it seems...
