Description

Oblong vase. Clear glass cased in purplish-black, rolled on silver foil and blown into a rectangular mould, cut, sandblasted and etched. Rectangular with rounded corners and straight sides. The clear glass of the exterior is matt and slightly rippled, and is decorated with a 'wrapper' in polished black and mottled purple and silver, which appears to be held on by two shiny black strings attached to its pointed ends.
