You might want to buy that weird vase the next time you see it at your local thrift store as a glass vase purchased at $4.99 has been identified as a rare piece from 1902 worth up to $15,000.
The Loetz Argus glass vase was designed by Austrian Koloman Moser, who participated in the Vienna Secession art movement, Heritage Auctions said.
Moser was born in Austria and was known for illustrating books and designing art pieces. He worked in Vienna and served as a professor of drawing and painting until his death.
The vase was purchased by an unidentified buyer in the Pacific Northwest and is now the cover of the auction catalog.
