This is a lovely piece of 1960s glass.
It is a really large and heavy piece - weighing nearly 3.2 kg in weight unpacked.
The weight and size of this substantial piece of mid-century glass is reflected in my higher postage costs here.
It is 8 1/4 inches in diameter - with a diameter at the top of 8 3/4 inches.
The diameter of the base is 5 1/2 inches.
I haven't seen another vase of this particular design - but it looks like a piece designed by Frantisek Vizner - who used the grass-like lines as part of the surface decoration of some of his pressed glass pieces.
It is also decorated in a random pattern around the outside of the base area with a raised bubble pattern.
It has a fleur de lis mark on the base as photographed.
It is in excellent condition with no damages - any white marks in my photographs are caused by reflections from the glass.
If anyone has any feedback on the maker of this lovely piece - I would certainly welcome more information.
With a texture reminiscent of melting glass - this showstopper would certainly look magnificent in a more minimalist interior on a rosewood coffee table or bureau.
SADLY DUE TO THE HEAVY WEIGHT OF THIS PIECE - IT WOULD HAVE TO BE UK POSTAGE ONLY
