A truly exquisite piece of antique glass. The top portion of the vase has six panels alternating between Coralene gilded jeweled / beaded panels and cut geometric panels. Below is a 1 high area where all of the panels are Coraline, gilt, and beaded.
There is a metal collar which attaches the paperweight bottom, a solid piece of glass decorated with hand painted garlands and flowers, to the vase. The collar is probably a repair which conceals a break between the top of the vase and the paperweight bottom. A spectacular piece of glass circa late 1800's / early 1900's.Size: top 3" diameter; 10 3/4" high. The vase is very heavy and a good percentage of the weight is the solid glass base.
