Something pretty for Xmas .... again .... Seasons greetings to all
Demonstrating the evolution of peachblow glass in the hands of the Artisans at Loetz in the late 1800's ..
.. along with a few embellishments ? from the Retailers of Paris ...
For the underlying glass style and colouring I favour Pavonia ... although the present consensus would appear to be Persica
Identification on the base in gold ink ... 159 ... T&M ... IV/202 ...
I interpret this as: Shape/Distributor: 159 ... Turbot & Mayer ... 1884/94 ... Victorian Dekor: 2o2
Height is approximately 16 inches with the mount .... diameter approximately 10 inches ...
Majestic seemed appropriate .... the perfect thing to bring home from a (Xmas) shopping trip to Paris a hundred and twenty years ago .....
(- will try to update the photos when I have a moment)
Merry Xmas everyone
Update: Added picture with the ? Persica x2
