A stunning Bohemian art glass vase from Poschinger, a company based in the Black Forest of Germany that has been making hand blown glassware for over 450 years.
This footed vase has a bulbous cobalt blue glass body with iridescent finish that glows with purple, turquoise, rose and other spectacular colors. The tapered neck is stretched and crimped into a flora form shape that sparkles with a rainbow of iridescence. the rim is turned and cut and pulled into sharp points at intervals. This edge treatment makes it feel almost chipped, but it's the design, not an imperfection.
The large size really makes an impression: 9 5/8" tall and approximately 6 3/8" in diameter.
It's signed Poschinger on the bottom as pictured.
The vase is in beautiful condition. A fine example from one of Europe's best and oldest glass houses.
The vase weighs a hefty 3 lbs before packing, and shipping will be via FedEx Ground/Home Delivery, insurance included.
