Bristol glass is a mold-blown, semi-opaque glass manufactured throughout Europe and exported to our shores during the Victorian era. It is usually pink, blue, white or clams-broth in either a glossy or acid-finish and decorated with various motifs popular during the period of 1880-1915.
This beautiful, gracefully contoured vase has a frosted white or clams-broth base with enameled motif and narrow gold bands. Red and white flowers are nestled in a bed of shaded green and tan leaves with brown, blue and gold accents. A garland of gold branches and leaves hang beneath the floral arrangement on which a red, blue and tan bird is perched. The vase stands 8 3/4" in height and rests on a round pedestal base measuring 3" across. There are no cracks, chips, repairs or enamel wear.
