This beautiful art glass vase in a graceful hourglass shape was hand made by the Akcam Glass Company in Istanbul, Turkey. Akcam was one of the first private, major glass companies in Turkey, founded in 1946 and still in operation. They are known for their high quality and contemporary designs. The hand applied enamel in shades of green, beige and black was dripped and swirled for a lava glaze effect. The interior is enameled in solid beige and is missing a few tiny flakes (we illuminated them for you to see in photo # 7). The vase is otherwise in excellent condition, retaining its original, older label on the bottom. It's 9 inches tall, with a 2 inch wide mouth and a bottom about 4 inches across. It weighs one pound and is lovely without or without flowers.
