The item is the highly desired Floriform or flower form vase. The vase is a nice size as it stands 7 1/8" and the top opening is 5" in diameter at its widest point. The foot has a diameter of 2 7/8. The vase has a nice Floriform or flower form shape.
The vase has a round foot with the body that rises up from it and slightly tapers out and forms a ruffled top similar to a flower. The top opening resembles that of a flower with six petals or ruffles. The vase is further decorated with 2 distinct patterns. The pattern at the top 1/2 of the vase is similar to a fishnet.
The lower or bottom portion is decorated in the green pulled feather pattern with a gold iridescence inside the feathering on the bottom foot. The top inside area is done in a brilliant gold onion stretched skin texture giving this vase its added realism. The interior also has this same gold Iridescence with it becoming lighter as you reach the inside bottom. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings.This vase is extremely clean and shows minimal signs of use. There is NO calcium deposits inside the vase what so ever. This vase has a beautiful polished counter sunk pontil. It is signed on the bottom with the acid etched "Quezal" cipher along with the letter "S" and the number "406". Was the founder of Quezal. The quality of his glass was as good as Tiffany, Steuben and Loetz. Quezal Art Glass pieces rarely come up in today's market. They were more noted for their art glass lighting shades they produced by the tens of thousands. It appears that the collectors do not want to let vases go. It is my belief that Quezal used a lettering system similar to L.
Tiffany used a prefix letter and a suffix letter before a number. Since Quezal started much later than Tiffany it is my belief that lettering system stood by a single letter. Since Quezal started producing glass in 1902 it is my belief that they used the letter "A" for this year. In 1903 was the letter'B and so on. Since mine has the letter "S" it is my belief that this vase was made Circa 1920.
