    Yes, it's Italian, but a mystery beyond that. Never mind: it's a really lovely glass vase: shapely and patterned in orange and gray shapes on a filmy skirt.
    This vase, and the two others reviewed here, were well packed for their journey from New York to Maine. Brenda is a pleasure to deal with.

    It ain't the shape, although it is handsome: it's the glaze, the glaze. Think of an iridescent oil slick: blues and purples swirling around in continually changing patterns - almost hypnotic - and imagine that vision frozen in this Marei's blue/purple glaze. The miracle of glaze and fire in the kiln.

    THIS classy Haldensleben with its high gloss, bluer than blue glaze, is outfitted with fat lava swirls around its entire midsection. What I hadn't seen until I held this vase in my hands - were the white markings, almost like the whites of eyes, which spotlight each swirl. A thoroughly stunning piece, all-the-more unusual because so many East German vases are drab, ho-hum pieces. Not this baby!

    I received the vase safely. It is a beautiful color not often seen in "fat lava" vases. And thanks for the extras!
