Click to enlarge image(s)
Flower vase was created in a clear glass and was coated in a milky-aqua blue coating. An unusual feature to this vase is a pair of goldtone bands holding on a 'girdle' of what originally appeared to be leather but may be wood. There is a nice underlying grain to it. Etched or embossed on the waistband is a pretty scene including mountains, palm trees, pineapples and fish. This piece part of the vase is cracked near the joint.

Base of the vase is embossed with SieWare 9 or SilWare 9 in a cursive print.
