This tall, heavy clear crystal vase was deeply hand etched with a prancing unicorn. Designed and created by master glass engraver Perry Coyle, a former artist for Steuben, the vase stands 17 inches tall, has a 5 inch diameter mouth and a 3/4 inch thick base the same diameter. It weighs an impressive 4 pounds. The vase is fully signed "Perry Coyle" (there are glass pieces out there simply signed "Coyle"); the signature is hand etched into the glass. It's in excellent condition with no chips, no cracks and no scratches or glass cloudiness.
Perry Coyle worked for Steuben early in his career. He left to start his own company called Oasis Studios in Los Angeles, California in 1976. The name was changed to "Mireau Crystal Company" a few years later. Coyle was the master glass carver and designer until 1995. He currently is the owner of O'Coyle & O'Coyle Fine Art Company, an art gallery in St. Louis, Missouri.
With its simple. elegant shape this vase is a stunning accent in any room.
Note: Any white spots on the glass are of course the effects of lighting.
