I have never been a real lover of amber glass, but! then again I suppose it also depends entirely on the piece, so! when I saw this large vase a few months ago, it wasn't immediately appealing, also the only photo was a real shocka, taken from distance and very dark, giving no idea what the colour of the glass even was.
It was the applied crimped rigaree attached to the rim that you could juuust!! make out that made me stop and stare at for a long time, I sat and watched it all week and in the end for the little amount they were asking, I decided to go for it...I thought another lesson taught if Chinese.
I love it!... it's a quite an impressive large, lovely vase standing..approx 22cm - 8.1/2 tall ... to just under.. 18cm - 7 inches in diameter.
Not being sure about who made this vase and after seeing a few very similar I think it may be by the New England Amberina or possibly a Mt.Washington Glass Vase, c1890, ...so any input would be very much appreciated!
Thank you for looking....:-).
