"From the design I can note a few things: 1. This is hand made. 2. Whomever made it was skilled at fine crochet or possibly tatting (lace making). 3. Based on fabric style and colors it appears to be from the American Art Deco Period (roughly)…"

"Katerina has got this mostly right - WTG Kat!
But at 10 1/2 inches it would not fit in any bottle, it would be top heavy. The "Console Bowl, Float" would be the correct item that matches yours. Just to avoid any confusion.

Thanks for replying! No, my Vicki isn't a scientist. She used to work as an economist at Texas Instruments, I think, then became a romance novelist (writing as Victoria Chancellor, her maiden name). She is from Kentucky and Chuck might be from there as well, not sure, but they lived in Texas for probably 30 years.
Thanks for the friend request. Why do you think that my vase is French St. Cloud? I have looked at pieces from that period, and it doesn't seem to look anything that was produced from that time period. My best guess is that it is from Owens pottery, circa 1900, when this glaze and painted floral scenes were popular. Many pottery companies were copying Rookwood during this time period, but I can't figure out who this is pottery maker is. I have seen two different pieces with similar markings and the "SCloud" stamp, but I have not been able to identify the maker. Very frustrating. I would be interested if you know anything more about this piece.
Hi Vicki, thanks for your response. I am using a regular pc but when I click on the icon, nothing happens. Next to it there is a space and a button that says browse, I click on it and find the photo I want and then click upload but all I get is that error message. Nothing seems to work.
Vicki his name is Ron McCracken and his grandparents and parents are pretty well known in Harrison. He grew up on Town Hall drive and his parents still live there. We just got back from staying at our lake home in Petoskey and visiting his family.

Depression Era and Depression Glass are interchangeable terms. True DG was made before WWII but we include some newer patterns in our books because other authors did and our readers expect to see these patterns when they open our books, too. Most economists agree that the actual Great Depression lastest through the 1930s and the glass companies continued their production of these patterns up until WWII when the natural resources to produce the glass and the equipment as well was directed to war needs. Jim and I have started using the term "Depression Era Glassware" as young collectors are uncertain what "Depression Glass" means. I hope this adds some clarity. B
