This lovely and rare piece of 19th C Art Glass is a bit of a mystery. It came to me from a fine collection of antique art glass along with a magazine clipping (last photograph) from January, 1963 which shows a nearly identical twin of this beautiful vase with an attribution to Thomas Webb. This sounds plausible, even probable, but an English glass group I belong to says that it is now widely accepted that pieces such as this were created by John Walsh Walsh. The certainty is that it is English, the mystery is which gifted glassworks produced it.
The piece itself is a beautiful and early air trap pouch vase of deep golden color over white. The satin finish really does look like silk - I think if it had a ribbon tied around its neck, a quick glance might mistake it for an antique Victorian formal ladies purse.
CONDITION is grand with appropriate wear on the bottom around the pontil. The piece bears the number '43' on a label from a previous collection. Measures 5" tall at its highest point and 6 1/4" in diameter around its bulbous belly.
A substantial piece weighing in at 2 lbs. 3 oz., this vase is a beautiful example of 19th C English Art Glass that would be a welcome addition to any fine glass collection. Enjoy!
