To many, it is considered the most beautiful ceramic golf piece ever produced. But the most amazing thing about this stunning piece is that no one is positive who produced it. The best guess comes from Decorative Golf Collectibles by Shirley & Jerry Sprung, which attributes this vase to "possibly Loetz," circa 1900. Loetz was an Austrian glass manufacturer known for its iridescent finishes in the very early 1900s. 

If you think this green enameled baluster shaped vase is beautiful, we assure you that these photos do not begin to do it justice. In a crowded room of golf memorabilia, it's impossible for your eyes not to be drawn to this glowing piece. 

Listed in Decorative Golf Collectibles at $6,000-$9,000. Very few known to exist. 12" tall. Nr. Mint condition.
