This is a stunning silver overlay vase. It is not your usual format as it is Art Deco from the 1930's. It is much more modern and masculine than it's foliate counterpart. It stands 12" tall and is banded with thin silver overlay the entire height of the piece. There is a shield with a monogram "M" in the upper portion of the vase. There is a worn L from the La Pierre makers mark and sterling at the top rim. The glass is in perfect condition there are no chips or cracks. The silver is all intact. This is a great tall sterling silver overlay vase.
