1980s Postmodern Glass Vase or Candlestick
A heavyweight glass vase by Fifth Avenue Crystal Ltd. for their “Saturn” collection, designed for retail in high-end department stores. Nearly circular with three ground edges giving the vase a slightly trilateral shape, the rounded sides have raised cobalt blue threading. The interior well has a sommerso effect in lime green and teal blue. When flipped upside down, the deep pontil accommodates a single candle.
Condition: Good vintage condition; professionally cleaned. Vase has a few small chips (<¼”) on one of the curved edges. Felt pads were previously affixed to protect surfaces from the heavy glass.
Dimensions: 3.5” width x 3.25” depth x 8” height. Interior well is 5.5” deep and 1.25” across; pontil is 1” in diameter
