This is a very odd and unusual Bohemian Czech art glass vase. The date is circa 1930.

The vase is 15 ½” high and 3 ¼” wide at the foot.

The body of the vase tilts in and then back out, and it does not go straight up. I’ve never seen anything like it before. You can see it most clearly in the photo were the vase is lying on its side; the mouth ends up approximately over the foot, but to the eye the vase appears askew, which is quirky. I believe the glassmaker knew the physics of the object he was blowing, and the glassmaker was allowing for the weight of the glass trail trims, and so the shape of the tall vase was adjusted accordingly.

The glass is blue, close to royal blue in color and there may be a clear layer of outer glass. The outer side has rounded ridges. There is a round foot. There are applied trail ribbons of glass that I believe is clear glass embedded with streaks of orange color, so the overall impression is the color orange. The ribbons are wide. The lower trail starts by looping around the bottom above the foot and then crawls up the side of the vase. The top trail is shorter and hooks over the mouth.

The rim is slightly rounded. The bottom has a round polished pontil with a tiny bit of roughness at the edge of the circle.

There are no nicks, chips or cracks.
