This is a beautiful Italian copper vase with glass mosaic, 18K gold plated over glass. There are figures around the vase. These piece was entirely hand made and blown by famous Masters. They worked at 1400-1500 degree centigrade. I bought this piece from Vienna, Italy when I was traveling there in 1980. Beautiful home decorative and interesting conversation piece. Three sets of figures around the vase. 15 inches high and 27.5 inches circumference at the widest section.
