This is a fine piece, which, though dating from the late 19th Century, appears distinctively modern in its pared-down, simple design ethos. It has been carefully crafted using opalescent 'alabaster' glass, the name given to a type of glass pioneered in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Opalescent 'alabaster' glass is semi-opaque, semi-translucent and normally finished in brilliant, beautiful colours. The famed Bohemian Harrachov Glassworks, to whom this piece has been attributed, made a number of these opalescent 'alabaster' pieces in the 19th Century.

This piece takes the form of a baluster-form vase on a square plinth. It has a long, slender neck with a wide flared rim which has been carefully crafted to resemble flower petals.

Condition: the vase has a small section which has been restored just under the lip of the pedestal of about 2cm in width.
