    IronLace
    (644 items)

    I have posted this vase previously, but I felt it needed another airing following a new photo shoot. I have owned it for about 12 years.
    Made from translucent satin glass with rainbow stripes in orange, mauve, & chartreuse, it has white Peloton threads (completely blended in), an applied rigaree in clear glass, & an applied foot in pale green that contains uranium & glows under UV light.
    It measures a most impressive 34 cm tall, 11.5 cm across the jack - in - the - pulpit shaped top rim, & 9.5 cm across the footed base.
    I feel that it most likely dates from late Victorian to Art Nouveau era, & is most likely Bohemian in origin.
    Any thoughts on a manufacturer would be welcomed...I have not seen another piece of Peloton glass quite like it.

      Quite beautiful IronLace! Great size too!
    2. IronLace IronLace, 3 years ago
      Thanks so much, Justanovice! Yes, it is large for Peloton glass, most pieces are relatively small so it was a rare find...
    3. Ivonne Ivonne, 3 years ago
      The size,satin glass with peloton isn't so frequent,I guess,interesting mix of colours and this funny rim = it's outstanding!

      Agree BEAUTIFUL. I don't think I've seen a JIP Peloton before and with such unusual colours.

      Thanks so much, Ivonne!
    7. IronLace IronLace, 3 years ago
      Thanks also, scott!

      Thank you most kindly, Vintagefran...yes, it is indeed something else. Buying it was a big hassle but all worth it in the end to get something so unusual...

      The colours are just wonderful, modern. It's like a threadworm rave!!

      That is the funniest metaphor I've ever heard! If I was in a band, "Threadworm Rave" would have to be the title of our next album! :-)
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 3 years ago
      Peloton par excellence!
    12. IronLace IronLace, 3 years ago
      Many thanks, sklo42...I wish I could give credit to the maker...they did a fantastic job with this piece!

      Vermicular shindig is another way of saying threadworm rave! :-)
