    I absolutely love the form of this vase; it is based on a classic design of a Dutch tulip vase, which were usually made of delftware. This is a very heavy piece, weighing 1lb 12 ounces (794g), and is 8-1/2" (21.6cm) tall. Similar designs featured three or five finger openings but this has the most, with seven openings. I wanted to see what the vase would look like filled with real tulips, and it was very interesting test; it is quite hard to get the tulips into the neck of the vase (especially the lowest two), and seven just barely fit, with quite a bit of prodding. These were very small tulips, too, so I wouldn't say the design was successful if used with typical tulips. Of course other flowers with narrow stems would look lovely, too. This form dates to 1899.

    4. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 3 years ago
      Hi Penny, thank you so much! Yes, it is quite a good size - and really heavy! I really had a challenge getting the tulips in - it was like a puzzle! :)

      You would wonder how glass this good could look better but here's the proof.
      I went oooh when I first saw this photo Michelle.

      I smiled when I saw this, two of your passions in one gorgeous image.

      Just a thought, perhaps the stems of modern tulips are bred to have stronger/thicker stalks to better support what is a heavy flower.

      That's beautiful Michelle! And the tulips look amazing in this vase.

      Thank you, Peggy! I like your thoughts on the tulips...I thought about recent hybrids and size as well. But then I remembered the big blowsy dutch tulips seen in old paintings. These pink tulips are actually very small for tulips, but were the biggest I was able to find this late in April; I was barely able to make them work. I know Warren has this vase in a huge size (14"!) so I think that would work better for traditionally sized blooms; the issue is the diameter of neck, and how many stems can fit into it. I really wanted to try it out, and fun doing it, too! :)

      Superb vase with a stunning display of tulips! I'm planting some more very soon...so I hope that by September I might just be lucky enough to find a tulip vase of my own...well, I can dream, anyway! :-)
    20. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 3 years ago
      Thank you ho2cultcha - nice to see you again! :)
    21. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 3 years ago
      Marin, thanks so much! I hope your tulips do well for you! I can't grow them here unless they are in a protected pot, because they are candy to our local deer - I am jealous you can grow them! Good luck with finding your tulip vase! :)
