A lovely organic-form hand-blown Bohemian iridescent glass rose bowl with ruffled edge and applied 'twisted tadpole' decoration, either Loetz 'Nautilus' or Kralik. It is unsigned.
The vase stands 3 1/4" high and measures 5" across the top at its widest point. It is in very, very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or regrinds and there is no interior staining or surface scuffing. The piece has a beautiful rainbow-hued iridescence. This 'Nautilus' design was introduced by Loetz in 1903. Several examples can be found on the Loetz website.
