Ooh-la-la! An Art Deco glass vase from France for those that enjoy their Parrots gilted rather than guilty and cavorting amid golden swags. The birds are done in primary colors of red, blue, orange and yellow, while the swags have both texture and swirl. Both the top edge and base are finished in shiny gold. It seems that the ribbed areas were also once lined in gold but much of it has worn away. The vase is larger than you'd expect, measuring 10 5/8 inches in height and 6.75 inches in diameter at the top. It is unmarked and in good condition with no chips or cracks, just minor use scratches and the occasional glass flaw, as well as wear to the gold and a bit of extra gold in places due to its hand painted nature. Truly uncommon and truly gorgeous , you can have your Avians and elegance, too.
