A beautiful Diamond Quilted MOP vase in yellow with a silver plated stand from the late 19th to early 20th century. The vase is blown case glass with a white interior with pale yellow overlay in the diamond quilted air optic pattern. The yellow fades from darkest at the rim to lightest at the base. The shape is cylindrical at the base flaring out to a squared ruffled/crimped edge. The glass measures 6 1/2 " tall and has a 2 1/2" diameter at the base, flaring to approximately 5" across the top. The bottom is finished with a polished pontil . The glass is in excellent condition there are no chips, cracks or repairs. The interior bottom has several small air bubble burst to the base white glass layer which can be felt with fingers. Also visible form the base are two small dark carbon inclusions from the glass blowing process. Otherwise only light dust deposits in the crimped edge which comes with age.
The stand is marked on the bottom with Manhattan Silver Plate Co., Quadruple Plate. The round stand sets on four decorative feet with two twisted swags used to secure the glass vase. There are applied flower motifs at the top each side of the swags. And a center flower attaching the curve of the swag to the base. Unfortunately there is a flower missing from the back swag (see image #8). There are several areas of loss to the silver plate as can be seen in the above photos a consequence of age.
