    This Baccarat vase is one of the heaviest I own; it stands 10" tall and the opaline glass is very thick, with a finely ground large pontil on the base. There are the faint traces of a red numeral on the pontil, as well. This particular vase shape was used quite a bit by Baccarat. The vase depicts a Japonisme theme of a swallow flying over a scene of blue willows depicted in the classic Japanese style. Interestingly, this vase was attributed by a well-known Asian art appraiser as Japanese, from the Meiji period (September 8, 1868 through July 30, 1912); it most probably dates to about 1880.

      This is just exquisite Michelle. I could look ta it for hours.

      Interestingly, Baccarat is a huge seller of glass in Japan today. The Japanese have a real love of it.

      I wish I took photos in th Baccarat Museum when I was rhere . Think was not allowed . I don't remember this type but so remember being blown away by the variety and that they did so many things that one would swear were by some other maker

      I think the colour palette is very French, rather sombre, as are some of the other examples you have shown. However not at all dull....lovely in fact!

      racer4racer, thank you. I had no idea that Baccarat was so popular in Japan - what an interesting change in styles and preference over the years!

      Marty, is the Baccarat museum in France? (I am guessing it is!) I would love to go someday; we have a trip to Paris planned for the summer of 2016, so maybe it will be a possibility! :)

      Thank you, Sklo. I hadn't really thought of the colors that way until you mentioned it, but you are right. I love earth tones, and I guess these speak to me somehow.

      Thanks you, Roycroftbooksfromme1!

      Thanks for the great link, Marty. We plan to spend some time traveling through the country, so maybe we can fit this in, too!

      It appears they now have a museum in Paris as well
