Austin Zimmer Vase, signed. This vase is very different and quite
beautiful. It is 7" tall, the opening at the top is 3½" and the base
measures 4¾". The main body and base of the vase are dark blue with
light blue swirls. The neck is scalloped and a golden brown with dark
brown lines ending at the body, where the lines touch the body there is
a dot of metallic glaze. The interior of the vase is glazed. There
appeared to be a chip on one of the scalloped edges on the mouth of the
vase but on further examination, it looks to have been done before it
was glazed as this area does have glaze and the porcelain is just quite
thin in this particular area. With the types of glazes and shapes that
Mr. Zimmer uses, it does not seem that this would detract from the piece
and if even noticeable might enhance it. Original price on the base is
$38. This may have been one of his older pieces; newer examples have
been found selling for around $58. OUR PRICE
