This is a Japanese art glass vase using the technique of plique-a-jour to make the design inside the glass. The date is circa 1900.

The vase is 3 ½” high and 4” wide at the belly, which is the size and shape of a small rose bowl vase.

The glass is white. Plique-a-jour uses enamel color between strands of metal inside the glass to create the shapes. It is a difficult process, which makes this type of glass in limited supply in today’s antique marketplace.

The front and back shows hummingbirds in flight, a hummingbird on each side, in colors of green, brown, yellow, red and blue. You can see the gold metal lines between the colors. There are long green stems and leaves, with big pink blossoms and each hummingbird hovers near a blossom.

You can see your fingers through the glass when you hold the bowl in your hands.

The edge of the mouth is banded in metal. The bottom edge has a thin line of the same gold metal, however it is worn with age due to shelf wear.

There are no chips, nicks or cracks.
