Description: 
Aquamarine blown non-lead glass vase with two handles with lily-pad decoration; spherical body with tall cylindrical neck with flared rim with second gather of glass tooled up into eight peeks, with two applied handles with curled ends and an applied disc foot with pincered edge and pontil mark.
Gallery Label: 
The regularity of the tooling, the unrealistic handles, the oddly-shaped rim, and the large amonut of crimping on the foot suggest this is a twentieth-century reproduction.
