Stunning Sevres Crystal vase in rare Alexandrite coloration. This fascinating glass changes color depending on the lighting. Color is aquamarine under fluorescent lighting and violet under normal light. This impressive vase has a thick walled glass body and nice Mid-Century design with wide side wings that narrow as they go from the bottom to the top of the vase. Vase is marked with the acid trademark stamp of Cristalleries De Sevres, France. Original retail on this vase was in the $2000.00 range.
Dimensions: 11 3/4" high, 8" overall width with an oval base that measures 4 1/2" wide and 3 3/4" deep.
Condition: Vase is in very good Estate condition although there is a small (1/16") scratch in the glass about half-way up the center body and a small chip/fracture in the glass near the base on the same side (see photos). The vase also has the expected minor surface scratches on the base from normal wear. Still, this is a very impressive vase and the flaws are considered minor and detract little from the beauty of this stunning vase.
