Offered is this rare green-to-clear 'Cluthra' glass vase in a metal holder, made by WMF around 1900. The vase is 13 inches (33 cm) tall and 4 inches (10 cm) wide. The glass is in fine condition. A tiny portion of the metal end might be missing, since the end feels somewhat rough (see last picture). Marks on the metal are (see second-last picture): 'as' (for: antique silver finish), I/O (for: normal thickness of silver-plating), and the rare 'WMFB' early signature for WMF (the 'B' stands for Britannia metal base, that is 92% tin, 6% antimony and 2% copper) - the 'WMFB' signature was used by the company between 1880 and 1918.
