This small 5 1/4 inch tall vase has a broad base with a well for water. The narrow neck widens to a mouth that is decorated with a pattern of hatched diamonds and fans with a serrated rim. The base well is trimmed with a pattern of herringbone and horizontally hatched panels. The base is ground smooth. There are a couple of rough spots on the rim that you can feel with a fingertip, but they are not apparent to the eye. The busy geometric pattern is crisply pressed to simulate the much more expensive cut glass patterns of the era. There is a slight haze in the base well, which is obviously hard to clean since it flares widely beyond the narrow neck of the vase. This is an unusual sized vase for this era, but would make a very lovely addition to a boudoir with a nosegay of small spring flowers.
Good things come in small packages!
