    In my experience these come in three sizes, in clear glass or satin glass and in various colour combinations for the feet, the double stem and the leaves.The applications can be flowers or fruit.

    This one is of clear glass, though the flower itself has added mottled colour and a vaseline glass edge on the yellow petals. In picture four you can see my two examples......but not the one that got away!

    When new to Czech glass I bought another one, between these two in size. It was satin glass, as is the small one but rather like the green one in colour. However its flower was just yellow. Not knowing any better I sold it because the glass was thick!!!......we live and learn.

      How lovely, and springtime looking! Very sunny glass, sklo. :)
    8. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      katherine.....maybe I'm attracted to bright sunny glass because it's very rainy where I live :)

      Indeed, scott, and yet each is slightly different in the way that the same parts are assembled. So fraternal twins rather than identical twins :)
    11. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 5 years ago
      these are beautiful, youres are lovely.....
      I was given one recently as a gift from a lovely friend who I admire and respect. A great shock to receive so I can tell you.... I will hold it near and dear to my heart...maybe not too close as the thorns will get me....!

      When I first saw these I thought they were modelled on test tubes. In a way they are. lol. But what heavenly treats they are when you get to own one. Most self respecting collectors seem to have one..lol....only kidding...which makes them even more exciting. lol. I've also joined the club!

      Mine have different textures in the glass. The bottom part of the stems are lined/striped I think in a different texture to the top of the glass....they feel terrific to hold, the base is chunky in weight, quite heavy...I would imagine to help its stability...

      Very lucky to be the owners, you have at least two...WOW. The smaller one of yours is my favourite size. The texture just incredible...

    12. IanBrighton IanBrighton, 5 years ago
      Anne, I think your comment about test tubes is really interesting but I had thought the tube vases a development of the epergne. I don't know if that is any help?
    13. scottvez scottvez, 5 years ago
      Yep-- fraternal is what I was thinking as well!

      Thanks for sharing!

      Lovely photos of a lovely flower. I am amazed at the survival of these beauties and also how they have not dated - so much from this time seems too fussy. These are just gorgeous.
      I like to imagine the glass maker working away at this - I hope he was happy with the outcome!
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      AnneLanders......I look forward to seeing yours soon Anne......as by the nature of their manufacture they're bound to be different. Just compare scott's with mine.
    16. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Karen......They only survive because the glass is thick, just what I didn't understand with my first one!
      And yes, much glass from this period is over fussy for modern taste......but typical of the late Victorian period! Though I have all sorts of Czech glass I don't mix different styles or periods......works for me!

      hi Sklo
      I'm unsure about being a pre cursor yo Epergne...I'll have to think about that a bit....

      I don't know if I will post mine as it is a gift and the gift giver might appreciate the privacy that I have chosen to respect and in which it was given as I have... :)
      If you have my email, write to me and I will send you some if you like...

      Hi Anne, I wasn't wholly convinced of the connection between the thorn vase and the epergne either.....we shall have to take it up with Ian!
    23. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Hi Justanovice, thanks for the love :)
    24. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      This has so much going on Peggy... the colors, the twists, the beautiful flower... I love it! Great pics too!
    25. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 5 years ago
      Peggy they are a little different over there in their thinking...it's the cold and where Ian is he has to contend with the salt as well!!
      No Ian, you'll have to explain yourself a little as we are a little confused.
      I'll pay that the steps are all coming out of a sigle point sort of at the base and maybe if vaseline has been used on our thorn vases then maybe but it's a big stretch I fear!
    26. IanBrighton IanBrighton, 5 years ago
      Maybe too much of a stretch of the imagination! But I think that the same skill that made epergne parts is employed in these tubes and sticks at least. They are similar to me as hot-worked hollow pieces. If you look at some of the epergnes as well, they look like parts of one of these vases.
    27. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      @ Rick, I agree...not a shrinking violet this one!!! and thanks for the pics compliment.
    28. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 5 years ago
      What a beauty, Peggy. One of the prettiest I have seen! :)
    29. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 5 years ago
      Ian, I think the link between epergnes and these floriform tubes is quite close, too. I have seen epergnes pieces with thorns and applied flowers, using pretty much the same techniques for both. I think you make a very good comparison.
    30. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you for both your comments, Michelle, and Ian,sorry I doubted you.
    31. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thanks for the loves, Justanovice, Rick, Michelle, Anna, Nicefice and smiata.
    32. Shawnl86 Shawnl86, 5 years ago
      I love the large one, however you know I am a fan of Applied fruits as well! Both are spectacular examples!
    33. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you, Shawn :) Me too, and I'd love to find more!
