Web Description: 
This large vase is identified in Hoare's scrapbooks, now in the Rakow Research Library. At 20" tall, it was undoubtedly a special order and may be unique. A piece of this size was difficult to blow and even more difficult to cut as it was very awkward for the workman to support its weight while it was being cut by the wheel. The "Rookwood" pattern first appeared in a catalog in 1910 and was made for only a few years as far as one can tell. This is the largest cut glass vase in our collection.
