Another dream Deco find - This elephant vase was created by Rudolf Wels for Moser & Sohne, for their "Animor" series, circa 1925. Deep amethyst glass is acid etched and gilt, with bands of black and amber lacquer circling the base. The intricate detail of the precious pachyderms at play is a stunning sight to behold. Incised with the artist's initials "RW" in the gold grass and signed Moser Karlsbad Czecho Slovakia on the bottom.  
11 3/4" tall by 7 1/2" wide
