This is an absolutely beautiful Mary Gregory vase from the last quarter of the nineteenth century. This vase is hand blown from what first appears to be jet black glass but if you hold it to the light you will see that it is a very dark purple/amethyst colored glass. This glass is much thinner than some of the Bohemian copies of the same period. The tapering baluster shape on large folded foot is so appealing. It gives the maximum area for the enameler to work on. And didn't the enamel do a fantastic job. His depiction of the little girl collecting eggs is utterly charming. The pate sur pate layers of enamel create an ephemeral impression. The gossamer quality of the girl’s dress, the creation of depth among the foliage and the shadowing on the three eggs in the basket are divinely executed. Under the flared rim is a collar of hand applied small white enamel dots.

This vase measures 12" (30 cm) tall with a base of 5” (12.5 cm) in diameter. Weight 666 g.

Condition is very good. The only indicators of wear on the outside of this piece are some nibbles around the lip of the rim. There is also the smallest rub to the glass on the left side.
