This is a really interesting & unusual vase that I won on eBay AU!
I haven't seen anything quite like it despite doing a lot of research...it's the shape in particular that is confounding me. Maybe someone will recognize it!
The vase is made from two layers of cased glass, ruby over clear. It measures 18.5 cm tall, 7 cm across the top rim & 6.5 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark. The decor features a bottom up spatter of indefinable light colours which also looks like it has some glitter/aventurine in it. There is also applied white random trailing on the middle - upper part.
It has suffered some damage to the top rim in the form of a lot of chipping but it still displays well when seen from its best side.
I think it is most likely of Bohemian origin...any ideas on a maker would be much appreciated!
Just added a fourth photo (not mine) of a vase I just saw listed on eBay US with same decor as mine, listed as Loetz, but the shape sort of reminds me of a Kralik vase I have in the Harlequin Frit decor. The plot thickens...
