This is a Bohemian blue opaline art glass vase dating to the last part of the 19th century, circa 1890. The maker is unknown.

The vase is 11” high and 4” wide at the foot.

You can see your hands through the blue glass.

There are bands of dark brown enamel around the foot, neck and mouth, with a diagonal band that sweeps up the face of the front. An inset scene is painted in the middle, and encircled with beads of gold enamel. The scene is of a setting sun shining on the turrets of a lighthouse that is perched on a rocky cliff. There are big cherry blossoms in pink, yellow and white, with dark blue leaves outlined in gold. There are lines of think gold to accentuate the brown bands. The style of decoration is Japonisme, emulated from the Japanese artists, and is helpful in dating the glass.

There is wear to the gold trim particularly on the rim and there is a bit of gold missing from the setting sun. There are a few bubbles in the glass. There are a few paint smudges left by that glass artist.

The rim is polished flat. There are a few pinprick nicks difficult to see or feel.

The pontil is indented inward and is smooth.
