Decorative and heavy vase in aquamarine. Massiccio base. The vase is costolato with large drips of cobalt blue and clear with gold leaf. Perfect play with light because of the gold reflection and the transparency of the aquamarine body.
Base reads and other identifications, references: No signature. Rated 3 star.
