vetraio50
(441 items)

I saw these at Vinnies a month ago and bought the two for $8. I could not leave them behind. The condition was not perfect. These items always seems to have taken a knock or too. They are tall and are easily knocked over. But I liked the Nouveau decoration of the impressed flowers and 'whiplash' or 'coup de fouet'.
They are reminiscent of 'trench-art' I suppose too.
It was just good to get a pair.
They are both 31 cm or 12.2 inches tall.
the diameter at the base is 10 cm or 4 inches
The only mark on the bottom is an impressed "Solid Copper"

    Gorgeous...absolutely gorgeous...$8!! What a fabulous deal for these beauties...
  8. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Many thanks gingerakesler! I was surprised that even at Vinnies they have become so jaded with copper and brass. Soon they'll be giving away silver again! But if they see an orange piece of glass they want squillions for it. It's the fickle finger of 'taste'.

    To me, the metal arts are every bit as amazing...totally underrated art form. Love your set, and I'm green with envy! I know right where I would put them in my home ;)

    Very nice. $8 for the pair is a STEAL.

    Gingerakesler - you and I are on the same page when it comes to decorative metal work. The Arts & Crafts collectors appreciate their metal work (and prices reflect it!), but often other makers and periods are very under appreciated.

    So I think I ran into something very similar at the thrift yesterday but in much worse shape. I kept thinking...where have I seen these....and now I know. Condition was pretty bad so I passed. Now I wonder...
