Very unusual cobalt blue cut back vase dating to very early 20th century. Imagine this all blue, then cut back by hand to the design you see except then they had to add the gilt. This is large at about 13" tall, and roughly 5 1/2" diameter at the widest. The design I would say is secessionist.....very thick and sharply cut. The base is cut flat also. Rim is cut, beveled, and polished....then gilt. The only flaws I could find was one small base edge chip seen in last photos......and 3 teency teency pin head size flecks to one of the edges of blue as photographed(3rd from last and I think all are irrelevant on this piece). Heavy and solid. Very scarce work.
