It is 16.5" tall, and the glass alone is 11" tall and 5.5 in diameter at the top. We are not sure if the metal base is sterling silver, but it is original to the piece. This beautiful vase is blue glass that is cut to white and then cut to clear in other parts. The metal base has leaves on it to suggest that the glass is shaped like its flower.
