Yes!..I know I have some very pretty vases and rare ones.. and... some may think I am crazy (I know Craig does ;)...but! I adore this vase so much so!.. that when we packed up to live in the garage (while our house was/is being built) it was the one I didn't...couldn't!..I needed to keep it with me, to keep looking at it!..it makes me smile...:-))
I call it my vase within a vase.....I just love the little Putties/Cherubs beavering away engraving on the water wheel their precious glass vase... I imagine them creeping out at night when all the grown ups have finished for the day and quietly working away, unseen and unheard!!!
Not sure of the age but would put it in the last quarter of the 19th century, possibly earlier.
The enamelling is exquisite!.. and it's a large vase... wide and! tall...standing..approx..11 inches x 6.3/4 (in diameter)
A few people have seen it lately and loved it too! so I thought I would post to and share also! with you my friends...thank you for looking!
