I am happy to share the newest enameled Baccarat vase to join my collection - it is a sweet little one, just 6" tall and has a cheerful deep rosy red background with a spray of roses across it. It is signed on the side of the vase towards the bottom 'Baccarat' and has the typical large perfectly round and shallowly ground base, numbered in dark red, of these types of Baccarat opaline pieces. I believe the vase dates to about 1880.
I fell in love with this one right away because of its size and the roses - so sweet! I have seen other Baccarat vases with this rose decor in gray, blue, and deep brown backgrounds, varying in size from 8" to 12" in height, and the color and size of this one drew me in. In image 3, I am showing a picture of it on my mantle, next to another Baccarat piece in my collection.
