Few things are as jaw droppingly-beautiful as the Wiener Werkstatte creations gathered in the shop at New York City's jewelbox of a museum, the Neue Gallery.  I have long coveted the Moser cut crystal vases they have there; they are perfection. I noticed they recently expanded their vase assortment, so with the abundance of spring flowers, you have  a reason to splurge.

Smooth, softly curved lines in the Bell-Shaped Bohemian-made blown glass Vase Joseph Hofmann designed in 1915 look as fresh today as they did then. Simplicity goes a long way.

Moser crystal makes me swoon.  The Hoffman-designed Facet-Cut Vase they produce is
shown in Rose and also comes in cobalt, pale emerald, and dark violet. 

If height is what your after, the Hoffman-designed Facet Cut Vase with a splayed base is the answer. Felek┼čan Onar for Neue Galerie creates this mouth-blown glass piece exactly the way it was  made way back when.

The emerald green orb of mouth-blown, hand-cut and polished glass by Feleksan Onar for Neue NOW was introduced last year and inspired by Josef Hoffmann

Choose from emerald or cobalt blue with the Hoffman Facet-Cut Glass Vase by Felek┼čan Onar for Neue Galerie design that was created by the Weiner Werskstatte master in 1910.
