This is a Bohemian Czech art glass vase. The body of the vase is cranberry. The foot is an applied clear glass plain circle. The date is circa 1900 - 1939.

The vase has a white hand enameled Victorian girl playing with a rolling hoop. To the left of the girl is a tall leafy tree.

Mary Gregory decoration is white enamel painting on art glass. Most of this decoration on antique glass was done in Bohemia between 1880 and 1920; this type of decoration started around 1815 and continues today, but the more modern post war techniques are evident because the characters are out of proportion and the detail isn’t clear, for example the head will be over-sized. The quality of the painting on the antique glass is determined by the detail and how many firings it went through. The white enamel decoration isn’t all children at play and adult figures, as there are bird and butterfly motifs, rural scenes, deer in a forest, etc.

Mary Gregory decoration is also called “Painted Cameo” or “Poor Man’s Cameo.”

The rim of the mouth is round.

The vase is 12” high and 4 ½” wide.

There are no chips, nicks or cracks.
