This double handled, heavy, pedestal based vase is in the Monticello Pattern by Indiana Glass. The double handles give it a trophy like appearance and it measures 6 3/4" tall x 4" across at the scalloped mouth. This rather unusual piece is large enough to be used as a spooner, celery, or a vase though the original intent is said to be as a chalice. The flashing or stain has a golden hue and is a bit lighter than most ruby red flashing and is probably best described as cranberry colored. The quilted diamond like pattern sparkles in the light. No cracks or serious breaks found. In excellent, but not mint condition, there are a few bubbles noted in the glass from manufacture. A couple of the diamond points are rough, one perhaps very slightly nicked which is notable when running your fingers over the piece. The flashing is fully intact.
