Iridescent Glass Vase in Pewter Mount*
Attractive amphora shaped vase in violet coloured glass with silvery-blue and greeny-gold splashes and applied colourless threads, showing a strong iridescence.
This is a striking piece in a most attractive colour combination and catches the eye immediately, not least in view of its good size at 24.5 cm. high.
Made around 1902 by the German company Fritz Heckert who were based in Petersdorf.
The vase is set in a two-handled pewter mount which extends on two sides down to the circular foot on which it stands. The mount was made by F. van Hauten & Son of Bonn and bears their mark on the underside together with the number 1846.
Width between each handle edge is approximately 23 cm.
