FABULOUSLY DESIGNED heavy sommerso dark olive green petal art glass. The somewhat squared top petal design and folded clear glass side design gives this beauty quite a dramatic look. The outside base feet and folds near the top are clear glass that allow the olive green inside glass to flow up into three thick petal folds. The glasswork is very heavy looking, and the twists in the creases of the top petal on very close inspection might seem to be cracks, but it is only the illusion of the twisting of the clear and olive green glass.
The heavy glass folds, sommerso and wider base details are characteristic of Lorraine Glass Industries, although there is no sticker on the piece. Chalet also produced similar styled pieces. The vase measures 10" high, 6 1/2" across the widest top petals and 4 1/2" across the widest of the bottom feet. In good condition with only minor scratches underneath the base that would be consistent with the age of this piece.
