This is a Bohemian art glass vase, shaped somewhat like a bowl. The maker is Pallme Konig. The date is circa 1900.
The vase is 4 ½” high and 7 ¼” wide at the top.
The foot is round. The body flares outward to a rim that is tilted up with six holes.
The thread is random, which is how Pallme Konig made a lot of their glass. It makes for a real pretty pattern, especially looking through the glass from the inside, which is probably why the vase is in this shape.
The glass is either clear or pale green, and the applied iridescence shades the colors to a darker green at the rim. The iridescence is on the inside as well as the outside of the glass. The iridescence also shows colors of blue and gold, depending upon the light.
The glass is in good condition. There are a few air bubbles and line folds in the glass, due to the glassmaking process. A few little areas that look like cracks are really tiny threads.
The rim is round. The pontil is round, indented and ground. There is one flake off the edge of the pontil area, and the center of the pontil is not ground, where the rod was broken off; this is all part of the glassmaking process and not a post-production injury to the glass.
