PULLED FEATHER ART GLASS INK POT. Attributed to Quezal because of its technique ; i.e., Pulled Draped Feather Drag Loop of Calcite White over an Amber- Gold Bulbous Base Art Glass. While it has a translucent iridescence, it is slightly more subdued than aurene favrile. Coloration is very pleasing. Hinged top fits firmly. Pontil is evident to the touch.
I find no makers marks or signature. The integrity of this exquisite piece of art glass concludes it was made by Quezal as opposed to Durand, Steuben or Tiffany who were in great competition on these pieces.
Pulling of Calcite White is precise and exacting over a thin amber base - there are absolutely no flaws. Fitting is heavy and machined to perfection giving it a firm fit.
Stands 4-3/4" tall. Bottom diameter is 4".
