This plum vase is so lovely. Colored in purple this vase has a unique design on it. It has three inverted fan like grooves 2 ½ inches long. Between these grooves are three grooved stars. Halfway down the vase there are large grooved peaks. It is difficult to describe please see the pictures for clarity. The base is round with a star pattern and is only 1 ¾ inches wide. The vase opening is irregular in shape and has several indents forming a type of fluted edge. The inside is a light soft purple. You can see the layers of colored glass by looking down at the inside of the vase. The color of this vase appears to me as a smoky purple but some have called it a smoky brown so interpretation is up to you. It stands 6 ¾ inches tall. The weight of this item is 2 pounds. A very pretty vase with no identification marks or chips noted.
