To what extent have the stripes been marvered into the glass, or, I guess a better way of putting it,  how much do the stripes stick out from the glass?  What's the base like?

Hi. There is some texture to the vase from the colored bits, the base has very little if any wear. Cheers

Hi Michelle. No unfortunately I think that was possibly the remains of a sticker that distorted the photo. Cheers
