Antique Victorian Black Amethyst Vase Mary Gregory Enamel Winged Angels Foliage
Victorian antique black amethyst vase, just shy of 10 inches tall, painted in the Mary Gregory style. The enamel painting on this piece is precious. It depicts two winged angels or putti, the boy on right with a watering can watering the floral foliage, the girl just watching and listening. They both have sashes wrapped around them and the girl on left is wearing a hat. When looking at the vase it appears black but when held up to the light you see the purple. It has a broken pontil that has not been ground and the number 5 painted on the base. I do not know if this is American or European. Boston and Sandwich did work like this as did Moser. Some minor wear on base from sitting. Please look at all photos and blow up as they are a huge part of the description and show dimensions.
