Unusual French art glass vase

Schneider French art glass vase.jpgCheck out this unusual Schneider art glass vase that recently sold on eBay for $2,425. (Item number 120283294262 if you want to see many more images and more of the description.)

VASE WITH IRON MOUNT CIRCA 1920S. The glass body is mottled red-orange
to yellow, and is mounted by iron, which to my eye resembles very
moderne styled stick figures assending the sides of the vase. The
design is Arts & Crafts in style with the hammered base, but also
has an Art Deco & a very modern architectural element, with the
simple & interesting criss cross design. Arms outstretched they
climb…Anyway…this jewel has something for everyone, as I believe
the design is as valid now as it was then. The vase is approx. 20 3/8″h
X  9″(dia. top) X 5 1/2″ (dia. bottom).

I’m awestruck by the craftsmanship and the design.

What do you think of it?
