This is a 12" tall black glass vase, deeply engraved with abstract flowers and foliage. It is custom engraved with a name in Victorian style lettering. It is confusing because the design seems more Art Deco style while the lettering is more Victorian style. The base color of the black is difficult to see. It appears as a reddish amber color. The bottom is convex. The glass is thick.

For some reason the colour and the design make me think of Saloman Reich as the maker of the glass.
Might be an avenue worth exploring?

I don't think the lettering is Victorian by the way.  It's highly stylised in a beautiful way and done beautifully, but doesn't make me think Victorian when I look at it.
