    This Chinese pulled spatter glass vase is 7.5" (19 cm) high x 5" (12 cm) in diameter x 5.5" (14 cm) wide including handles and weighs 2.5 lbs (1.1 kg). It has a semi-matte concave pontil grind on the bottom. Yellow/brown/green/red spatter glass in a pulled feather design is encased in clear glass ... It has a lot of things going on and really caught my eye.

    Pretty sure I paid used ($14) what one of these goes for new, but I couldn't help myself. I don't often succumb to Chinese art glass, for various reasons, but I was its bitch the instant I saw it in the thrift shop. Don't judge me! It is so cool though....

    I hate to be the one to say it, but maybe we need a "Chinese Art Glass" category. (Oh the shame.....)

    Lost the light here today and a couple of my images are blurry so will try again tomorrow.

      The Chinese glass makers have their talents and I think in years to come some of this glass will be very collectible.
      In the meantime we can enjoy hand made glass for peanuts.
      There is quite a lot of work in this one Kevin!

      Thanks for your comments, Karen! Probably will be collectible someday, but I have to think that the inability to attribute the great majority of Chinese art glass to an artist, a glass house or even a region or style is going to keep the value down except for really exceptional pieces. I guess those factors could change in the future.
