Field Thistle, US Glass   Updated 12/16/2013

Although made in crystal in a wide range of shapes, iridized pieces of Field Thistle are quite scarce. The design is characterized by a largish flower with stems and thistles swirling up from the base to either side of the flower.

In November of 2013, Greg Dilian sent me this photo of his Field Thistle vase in celeste blue. It is 12 inches tall and has a 3 3/4 inch base. Amazing. I've never heard of a Field Thistle vase in anything but marigold.

The rare vase whimsies are found in two base sizes; 2 3/4 inches (and pulled up from the spooner), and 3 3/4 inches.
