An impressive vase, remarkably tall and slender, in an uncommon antique Heisey pattern. Elegant and dramatic.
Although this piece dates back to the turn of the 19th C into the 20th, it has a truly modern look and will appeal to many aficionados of Mid Century as well as contemporary design.
The 'Plaid' pattern has no number, and Dunbar's book, 'Heisey Glass - The Early Years: 1896-1924' says "This is a very hard to find pattern with few pieces available..." I have searched for months now and have found no other examples of 24" Plaid Vases anywhere.
Condition is very nice, with one seam at the foot being rough, but this appears to be a manufacturing event when the seam was trimmed, and is shown in the last picture. Measures 24 1/4" tall with a bottom diameter of 5 1/2", and bears the Heisey diamond "H" mark molded into its base.
This is a knockout of a piece with great eye appeal and should please either a Heisey collector, a designer... or both.
