A new Beyer vase to show off

Just acquired it, got a nice label, always good to know what I'm buying. A simple design, but very effective.

Nice design, Astrid.
Cut to clear is not my favourite style, but this one is really good.

It is what I would describe as a really powerful piece.
It has confidence, simplicity and presence.
I'm not going to argue with it! ;D

I know what you mean. Usually the cut to clear patterns are too elaborate for my taste, the same reason why I don't collect traditionally cut crystal. But in a more modern style it can work.
