OK, to be frank, this stunning piece of glass by Wuerttembergischen Metallwarenfabrik (WMF), Germany, scares the crap out of me. The rim is so thin and delicate, it almost seems to be made of crystallized sugar. One ding to this rim, and I don't think we're talking chip, but break. This form is represented in old WMF catalogs from 1928 as schale (bowl) J.66. Each piece of Myra Crystal takes four work days to make. The depth of color and irisation are impressive in person, and the richness of the layers seems to move and change with different light conditions. This is my first piece of Myra, and I look forward to finding more!
