A large Rindskopf Persica Art Nouveau vase. Persica is an uncommon Rindskopf decor and I think this is a particularly beautiful example with the blue iridescence at the bottom fading into a rare gold at the top - an unusual variation of an already uncommon decor. The base glass looks to me like the shade of pink achieved by adding gold to the molten glass, you can judge yourself from the last photograph which shows the glass transmitting light from a 250 watt bulb.

This lovely vase shows the influence of the Art Nouveau aesthetic, more properly called Jugenstil in Bohemia, the part of the Austrian Empire (now Czechoslovakia) where Rindskopf was located. The graceful lines of this vase rise dramatically from a square bulbous base, narrowing at the slender neck then flaring as it reaches its full 14 " height. This lovely shape is complemented perfectly by the swirling lines of the Persica decor - form, ornament, and color combining to create an extraordinary and appealing piece of glass. Dates to the late 19th or very early 20th C.

CONDITION is excellent antique, please look at the photographs. Polished pontil. Unmarked, but unmistakably Rindskopf Persica. Measures 14" (35.56 cm) tall and weighs 3 lbs. 3 oz. (1.45 kg)

A fantastic addition to any glass collection. Enjoy!
