Vase

The pear-shaped body of a long neck and horny, splaying top stands on a broad, conically rising foot of a splaying rim, supported by a spindle-shaped juncture. The middle of the body and the top is connected with a ribbed handle on each side, decorated with three glass drops, resembling brambles at the bottom and enriched with wings at the top. The fields between the handles are equipped with three ribbed pipes; the neck is surrounded by a wavy ring. The body - due to the optical decoration - is ribbed, striped, and spotted with pink melt-in glass thread. The form - especially the pipes on the body - reminds of a Spanish, Catalonian glass type called almorrata or almorratxa; the decoration, on the other hand, recalls a la façon de Venise glasses.
