I love this bowl/vase, though it's nothing compared to the beautiful glass I drool over here. I got it at an estate sale several years ago. It's really nicely made. The clear glass part is textured (thin grooves) all around. There are four hobnail raised areas on the bowl and pedestal. The top of each hobnail stripe on the bowl contains 3 opalescent hobnails, with the others going down the side, in clear glass. The top is hand blown. The opalescent milky glass on top is done in a ribbon. It's really pretty when the light hits it and it's gorgeous with roses in it. I've been told by many people that it's made by ____(pick a company), so I gave up trying to figure out who actually made it. I was told that it was made in the 40's or 50's, but who knows. I just know that, even though it's not nearly as special as the glass in here, I still love it.
