Description
A rare--possibly unique--early example of the glassmaker's art, this vase appears as if carved from jade, alabaster or some similar gemstone. In fact, as glass, it was even more precious to the age that created it. Time has in no way diminished that rarity, and we today can continue to delight in its astonishing beauty. - (GF.0007)
