The wave or ribbon of glass starts at the top lip and wraps around the vessel running horizontally at an angle all the way around and under the bottom. There are 16 rows of these decorating the piece from the top to very bottom underside foot. The base glass is uranium and it glows under a black light however instead of the typical Vaseline hue, there is a subtle pink amethyst glow to the clear glass.
When you handle the glass it also has a Vaseline glass feel to it. There are a few small air bubbles in the foot that gives this vase that added sparkle. This is a very exciting piece of Art glass.
