This listing is for a lovely Mt. Washington satin cased glass vase decorated with golden opalescent glass CORALENE beading in a seaweed pattern, c. 1900. This nice vase has a white glass interior cased with soft rose/cranberry at the top shading to white on the lower body with a satin finish and an all-over decoration of tiny golden opalescent glass beads in a seaweed pattern. The golden glass beads give a stunning contrast to the original color of the vase. Photos of Coralene Art Glass can be found on pages 58 and 100 of the reference book "The Collector's Encyclopedia of American Art Glass, Second Edition" by John A. Shuman III. Satin glass from this period is almost always unmarked, however, Coralene Art Glass was made by the Mt. Washington Glass Company of New Bedford MA. Mt. Washington glass is considered to be America's premier Victorian Art Glass. Quality art glass from this company was made during the 1880's into the early 1900's.
Dimensions: 5 1/4" high with a 2 5/8" diameter top, an overall width of about 4 1/2" and a base diameter of 2 3/4". Weighs 1 pound.
Condition: This pretty vase is in excellent Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The Coralene beading is in very good to excellent condition with only a few very insignificant missing beads in the seaweed design.
