This listing is for a STUNNING Sterling Silver overlay on cranberry Art Glass vase, c. 1890-1910. This incredible vase has a thick applied layer of Sterling Silver overlaid on a heavy ruby or cranberry glass body with an unusual tulip shape. The silver design features flowers and foliage and covers a majority of the glass with the rich cranberry glass showing through the pierced design. The upper edge of the vase has a silver rim and entire base of the vase is overlaid in silver. There is a fancy 3-letter monogram "H C N" on the silver upper base. Although we did not find the silver stamp on this vase, we do guarantee that this vase is Sterling Silver overlay. We believe it was made in the U.S. by Gorham, Alvin or one of the other prominent silver companies operating at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Dimensions: 10" high with a 3 1/2" diameter base. Weighs 1.4 pounds.
Condition: Both the glass and the silver overlay are in excellent Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs reflecting only minimal signs of normal wear.
