This is all I could come up with today, but it is unique. It's a little 8" bud vase with 3 Iris flowers in relief . The whole piece is very "art nouveau" with an unusual smokey colored glass. It's very thin and light and has two distinct seams running down each side. The top is ruffled with no chips or damage. I've seen some pieces online by Tiffin and Steuben that have Iris flowers on them but they are heavier and usually done in satin glass. There are no marks on the bottom so it's going to be rough identifying this one.

    might check into Tiffin's Iris vase; this looks same to me but most I see are noted as 6 1/2" tall.

    Ok, I guess-timated it wrong.I measured it and it is actually 6 1/2 " So it must be Tiffin. I had a hunch it might be, but I didn't see any images online that looked like mine.

    Still only seeing the black satin glass one by Tiffin. Hmm.... might not be Tiffin then.

    found one in satin smoke glass noted as 1930s and other colors as well; tho' mostly available in black.
