From 1895 to the late 1920s, this elegant and exciting manifestation of the glassmaker and silversmith's art garnered its own avid following, just short of becoming a decorative rage. Silver overlay and silver deposit were regarded as an exquisite, special gift or accent for that certain table or shelf. A few nice pieces of overlay were as evident in the genteel home as a piano in those days of refined, yet simple pleasures. This beautiful silver overlay bottle / decanter was probably made in the early part of the 1900’s. The glass is a wonderful yellow amber shade and has been decorated with a silver overlay design of trailing flowers and foliage set with a light and airy lattice-like pattern. The geometric angularity of the vertical and horizontal lines provides a vivid contrast with the curving free-flowing forms of the flowers and foliage which is most appealing. The silver has some wear so please see the pictures.
