This is a Bohemian art glass vase. The maker is Rindskopf. The date is circa 1900.
Rindskopf made this shape of vase and it can be viewed in the book “Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880 – 1940” by Robert & Deborah Truitt on page 119, Item 7.
The vase is 6 ¼” high and 6 ½” wide across the mouth.
The rim is turned down three times, with a small crimp put between each of the big ones. The body is pushed in three times. The edge of the mouth is round.
I have not seen this type of glass with Rindskopf before. The colors are gorgeous. The main color is green in lighting, yet more of a teal color in natural light. From the interior looking into the glass, the swirled colors are mostly white and an orange red. But from the outside, and perhaps due to the iridescence, the colors take on different shades, with tones of burgundy, gray and purple.
The pontil on the underside is round, indented and polished, with one part on the side showing a smooth snap-off.
There are no nicks, chips or cracks. Bottom wear is quite visible.
