Tall Grape Amethyst Glass Italian Optic Vase
Big, beautiful amethyst glass 1950’s Italian optic vase. Hand blown glass.
Blown from a mold which left the mold’s impression on the base. As it was blown out, the optics expanded into the vertical diamond honeycomb pattern. The glass is smooth on the exterior, the pattern is a bit raised on the interior.
Deep luscious vintage purple glass. The rim was ruffled and heat-finished by hand. No damage. In original condition with medium bottom-wear and multiple trapped air bubbles within the glass (expected with most mid-century blown glass).
Stands 13.5″ tall on a 6.5″ wide base with a 3.5″ wide mouth,
