Bristol glass is a mold-blown, semi-opaque glass manufactured throughout Europe and exported to our shores during the Victorian era. It is usually pink, blue, white or clams-broth in either a glossy or acid-finish and decorated with various motifs popular during the period of 1880-1915.
This lovely tall, gracefully contoured vase is a glossy white base with bisque and royal blue enamel background with a hand painted central motif of the head of a young stag surrounded by a garland of ivy leaves in shades of light to medium brown. There are added gold circular bands separating colors and sections. The vase stands 12 1/4" in height and rests on a round base measuring 3 3/4" across. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; major wear to the gold bands which indicates years of loving use. Unique subject.
