    I have to admit that I bought this piece for its gorgeous mount, which happily looks wonderful with the clear turquoise blue glass vase. The exquisitely detailed bees caught my attention immediately. This mount is a perfect example of Aesthetic period design, and dates to about 1800. The glass was made in Bohemia and is enameled with a white poppy or rose. The mount is silver in color, and the legs represent sticks of bamboo; it shows a Far Eastern influence as well as a prominent use of nature (the bees) - both tenants of Aesthetic period design. The vase with mount measure just under 9" (22.8cm) tall.

      Absolutely stunning! Love the bees & bamboo...the Aesthetic Movement is a favourite style of mine, too! We are lucky to have an Aesthetic coffee table which was saved from being thrown away years ago...& I only found out about it from a book I found last year!

      Marin, I would love to see a picture of your table! Thank goodness you were able to rescue it. Based on what I have seen of some of your collections, I know you have a very good eye for design, so you were probably drawn to it. Thanks for your kind comments on my vase!

      A stunning piece ! I have see past attempts to pair this frame with other, not so correct glass, unfortunately. This looks to be original to me, extremely rare and awesome! Did I say, this is what I collect? Art glass in Victorian silver plate frames ?? KUDOS!
    13. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 3 years ago
      Hi slpprs, it is great to know that you have seen this mount before! Yes, I agree that the glass definitely feels like it is original to the mount. It fits perfectly, and the style is correct for the period. I am sure you have a wonderful collection; I am going to have to take a look at your posts on CW. Thanks! :)
