The beautiful hand blown blue glass vase with an ovoid body tapering to the neck, with scattered cut glass starbursts motifs and applied with an elaborate silver overlay.
This type of silver overlay was very popular at the turn of the century, also being applied to ceramic wares and metals. Hard to say exactly which glass house or indeed which country might have made this as the silver is not marked. The piece comes with a valuation certificate from a glass specialist to confirm its provenance.
In the meantime a German specialist on silver overlay send to me the message below :
The glass was made pretty sure by Josephinenhütte in Schwäbisch
Gmünd (southern Germany). After WW2 they found a new place in
this town since 1951. The starcut is typical for this glass
manufactory. From then an intense cooperation with Friedrich
Deusch and his manufactory for silver overlay began. Deusch
invented the German silver overlay on glass and porcelain and
founded his firm in 1912 (also Schwäbisch Gmünd).
With Kind Regards from southern Germany
