You need to be more specific in describing your vase. Is it milk glass (white)? If so, hold it up to the sunlight and see if it emits a red color. The red is from gold and shows up in high quality milk glass. Mother of Pearl (MOP) comes from an abalone shell and usually is inlaid into wood, pottery, etc. I've never heard of a MOP vase.
If you are referring to the color, opalescense or irridescence, then you will have to provide more input.

Sandy - As soon as you unpack your glass - PLEASE share it with us, it sounds fabulous! - You too MJ - We want to see your collection!

Hi, I would love to see your glass, can you post some pics for us? I have never heard the term "Mother of Pearl" I am guessing what you have is irridescent or possibly opalescent? If you can post pics I'll do my best to tell you about it ok? How bout everyone else - What are your favorite types of glass to collect and or sell? I just got my son's friend to hook up an old scanner (I mean old - LOL) so I can post some pics from books. Tomorrow I will start up a few posts for everyone to look at! This is great fun! Thank you for joining!

HI Cheri - I say great minds think alike! Thanks for joining!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Glass Hound Heaven! I started this group to help others who love glass as much as I do. The picture above is a "Fake" tiffany vase. It is blue irridescent glass with pulled feather decoration. It has a fake mark of LCT on the base. It is well done, but not a real Tiffany. This one was likely made sometime from 1950-1970. By a studio artist. Please share your collecting and selling interests.
