Property from the Andrew Shine Collection
9⅛ in. (23.2 cm) high
Overall in very good condition. This elegant vase is decorated with dynamic banded and wave decoration in a range of iridescent tones, from soft yellow and green to more intense lavender and blue hues. The glass displays with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and minor surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The glass surfaces with some occasional extremely fine and minor surface scratches to both the interior and exterior, consistent with age and gentle handling. With a later applied engraved mark. A beautiful work with complex decoration.
