Any ideas who made this one?
The pontil is polished. This is the only picture I have.
Thanks!

Hi Doug,
this is an interesting looking vase.....it has a slight Central European Art Nouveau feel to it in terms of it's organic shape.
In fact the shape of it's flared top reminds me of a Victorian hyacinth vase.
I can't tell whether it's old or a more recent studio piece inspired by late 19th century styles.
Is it iridiscent? Is it thin or thick glass?
Marinka.
More glass than class!

Dear Doug, not really knowing anything about glass but quite a bit about hyacinth vases, if anybody shows me something like your vase I would say Dugan. They made hyacinth vases a bit lopsided and with gold, for what it is worth..... Patricia

Unfortunately Dugan only used one color in their vases and they usually have an overshot texture on them..this one has way too many colors for Dugan..
