This simply beautiful art deco art glass vase was produced by Joseph Inwald at the Rudolfova hut' glassworks in Dubi u Teplice, a town in the Krusne Mountains of what was then Czechoslovakia. It was designed by artist Rudolf Schrötter in 1935 and the pattern number is 11572. I simply must thank Marcus Newhall, author of the book "Sklo Union Art Before Industry" for providing me with the above information.
The vase is simply teeming with overlapping pansies, each one a blooming work of art like they're carved out of ice. The outer surface of the vase has a frosted or satin finish but the inner surface is crystal clear which gives a completely different perspective on the design.
Measuring 5 1/2" tall and 5" in diameter the vase is sturdy in weight and can hold a nice sized bouquet of flowers. It is in exceptional condition with no on single nick or chip to mar it's beauty and would make a spectacular addition to your home or collection, or gift for a loved one.
