I would like to show one of my... had to haves!!
When I saw this triangular shaped milk glass vase I thought it was so beautiful the butterfly was another reason I loved it, but what really attracted me was the most was the shape and the pretty, colourful enamelling on the three sides, the front having the most detail.... it is so well done!
I love the way the bottom corners are rounded and doesn't sit on the surface, such a contrast to the straight sharp top rim.
Each of the three sides have minute applied 'pimples' that also follow the rim, then covered with a hand-painted stroke of gold paint, just a tiny detail! but adds so much! to the complete affect.
It's a wonderful triangle shape! made from a light creamy green milk glass, polished to a mirror finish.
I suspected it would be uranium glass when I bought it and was rewarded with confirmation when I tested it with a black light.
It's a nice height of 8 1/2 inches tall - just under 22cm and quite heavy! 2lbs 4.1/2 ounces or just over 1 kilo,
I hope you like it as much as I do and I am hoping someone can tell me who made it and how old, to me it looks c1900 but confirmation would be good.
Thank you for looking.......:-)
