Mt. Washington Art Glass 6 1/4" Acid Etch Burmese Lily or Trumpet Vase - image 1 of 13

This Mt. Washington Burmese Art Glass hand blown lily or trumpet vase, c. 1885 is just 6 1/4" high. It has a satin or acid etch finish, an indent scalloped trefoil rim and slender body that tapers to the base. This classic vase is pictured in nearly every book on Victorian American Art Glass, and I believe this is the smallest size of this classic vase. It measures 2 5/8" across the rim and 2 1/4" at the foot.

Condition is excellent. No damages, and the foot has the neatly ground pontil characteristic of Mt. Washington Glass. Previously owned by a midwest collector of fine art glass, it has been lovingly displayed for many years.

The Mount Washington Glass Company originally produced Burmese glass in the early 1880's. The color was achieved by adding uranium oxide and gold to a batch of opal glass which created a yellow opaque glass which when reheated became a delicate salmon pink. The process was expensive and time consuming, but the effect is beautiful.

Ruby Lane's "Real or Repro" has an excellent article on Burmese glass and reproductions - if you cannot find it, let me know.
