Iridescent Poschinger glass Snail and Serpent vase Art Nouveau
The color is a kind of blue green teal color with a gentle iridescence. It can be more blue or green depending on the light. This piece is not marked.
it is in very very good condition. I have been over this with a magnifying glass. I see a scratch that is almost impossible to see that was from manufacture (it goes thru some of the decoration and the decoration does not show the scratch at all so it was clearly there before being cut and colored) I don't see any chips cracks fleabites or anything along those lines.
This same vase can be seen in band v page 25 of the PMC. It says that it was made in 1899 by Betty Hedrich. It says the piece is marked but when I was at Passau earlier this year and looked at their piece I did not see the marking.
there is a cut and polished pontil with a corresponding fire polished rim. it is 9 inches tall and about 4 inches wide. (it may be a little off in either direction but that's the basic height and width. My measuring tape is industrial and I don't want to touch it to this vase)
Of all the pieces in my collection this one has gotten the most notice. Everyone always comments on this fantastic and rare specimen. Now is the time to buy it. You really may never see this piece show up again. the last picture shows it in my collection as it is currently displayed. This listing is Just for the poschinger vase with a snail and serpent.
