This is a Bohemian rubina verde, or rubena verde, art glass vase, shading from red – pink at the bottom to green at the top, and with some iridescence. The date is circa 1900.
The vase is 5 1/8" high, 3 ¼" wide at the belly and 1 7/8" wide at the mouth.
There are raised designs going up the side, which means the vase is most likely mold blown, and the designs extend to the bottom of the vase. The result is a swirling at the neck and a flared mouth.
The rim is polished flat with no beveling.
The pontil is round, slightly indented and polished smooth.
There are no chips or cracks. There are two pinprick nicks or nibbles on the rim that do not show up in the photographs due to the tiny size nor can they be felt with the fingertips, however they can be seen under a magnifying glass. There is one small glass bubble, difficult to see.
