The Vase is a cabinet size as it stands 5" tall and is 5 1/16" in diameter.
The Vase has that classic ruffled flower form shape with 6 ruffles. It displays an outstanding Blue Iridescence that Rivaled L.C. Tiffany's Favrile Style of Art Glass. The Blue Aurene iridescence is outstanding as you can see vivid hues of Blues, Purples and Golds accented with some Fuchsia. The soft but Brilliant Blue Sheen is soft to the touch and eye candy to the eyes. The inside of the piece has a nice Blue Iridescence where you can see gold over tones.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The only issue is a small scratch in the exterior iridescence and this is pictured and considered insignificant. The Vase is signed on the bottom with the engraved "Aurene" Signature mark along with its shape number "723".
