Hi - I'm new here and am hoping for some help. I tried to post this before, but it didn't work. I am a neophyte with art glass, so please forgive my ignorance.
I've just acquired a really spectacular art glass vase that I have very little information on. The vase is executed masterfully. The piece is signed, but I can't read the signature. It is, what appears to me to be a "pocket" vase, hand blown, with a yellowish base color. About 10" square, with a brilliant multi-color applied pattern that is reminiscent of an impressionistic Summer garden. The colors are magnificent and rival any I've ever seen in art glass for sheer brilliance. There are waves of subtle fumed iridescence over the entire piece. The gentleman that I got the vase from had very little information. It belonged to his parents and he had the vague idea that they bought it in Utah in the 1960's. Any help you can be would be greatly appreciated. I love this vase with my whole heart and can't stop looking at it, so any information would be a gift. Thank you in advance. I've attached a picture of the vase (which does it zero justice) and the signature, which is located on the punty button.
