This is one of the most gorgeous vases I've seen in ages. Standing at 15" tall, this hand blown Murano piece has great presence. Its turquoise color (my favorite hue bar none) is deeply saturated and the weight is impressive. I'm still researching its origins, but it's proving difficult. I do believe this predates the 50's era because of the classical form, but we shall see. I will update if I uncover the mystery of the hand that made this masterpiece of cased glass.
