Update: Since my original post, I’ve discovered that this is the same vase pictured on page 4 of “Collectible Glass Presents the Technique of Emil J. Larson Featuring Durand Glass, Book #3” from the collection of Mrs. W J Garrison. The collection was sold at auction in 1973. I’m still developing the provenance.
This is my example of a Durand production shape #1824 purchased from the estate of a glass hoarder. I spotted it hiding amongst a room full of American cut glass only seconds before my sister did. Thankfully, we're good natured about our collecting and don't fight over the pieces we find.
I love the blue and white King Tut pattern and the unusual bulbous shape. It is the first piece of Durand in my collection, but it certainly won't be my last.
