Brass engraved vase
Yellow Glass Frilled Rim Vase
A tall yellow Tango Glass vase with frilled rim trailed in black.
Tango glass is a technique created by Loetz in the 1930's, which was soon reproduced by companies such as Kralik, Ruckl and Welz. Tango glass consists of a blown glass vase, bowl or other object, in a bright colour such as orange, yellow or red, with applied glass decoration in another darker colour such as black or blue or sometimes white. The applied decoration is usually in the form of an outline to the rim, and handles, twists and lobes.
