Just starting to share my collection. Collected on a poor mans budget...lol. Here is a Baccarat Rose Tiente vase in a silverplated holder. The trumpet form three part mould use here is the same one use for the chandelier centerpiece in twist design. Some rose tiente pieces were made in ormolu holders, but this was the only one I have ever seen in silverplate. Note the double refire to amber at each end of the trumpet form. This is the only piece and that includes other chandeliers which I have seen a double refire. This is rose tiente which is almost always refired to amber at one end only. A french amberina. From golden yellow to deep amber. Many pieces, if not most, identified as rose tiente is not. It is either rubina (Deep red/cranberry to clear) or pink glass. Neither of those colors are rose tiente. Baccarat made numerous colors in swirl, starburst, or laurel patterns. Some of these are light blue, medium blue, dark blue, amber, pink, deep cranberry, clear, rubina just to name a few.
