This is a very vibrant transparent blue peking glass vase. It is very heavy with very thick walls. In fact, the measurable thickness of the glass at the top is 3/4" which should give you an idea of just how thick it actually is!
The very vibrant blue shade is deeper than show (it is not a turquoise shade of blue at all - more a transparent cobalt). The thick areas and how the light hits it makes some areas look very dark cobalt.
The vase stands 11" on a raised ring foot. It is approx. 6 1/2" in diameter across the widest portion of the bulbous bottom half. It weighs 4.9 pounds so you can get an idea of its very weighty 'heft'.
It is in excellent condition.
