Stevens & Williams Peachblow w Applied Floral Vase, Antique Victorian Glass 8.5
Peachblow with Amber and White Applied Floral and Amber Crest. Measurements: 8 1/2" high, 4 3/8" rim diameter, 2 3/4" base diameter and 5" by 3 1/4 at the widest part of the vase.
Weight, prepackaged: 1 lb 11.2 oz. There is a smidge of amber glass to left below the applied flowers, it's possible an accidental remnant from the artist or there could have been an leaf which is missing. The amber stem near the excess glass is clean with no sign of break, so I lean toward the former. Beyond the mystery above, the piece is free of chips, cracks and fleabites including the applied decorations and ruffled rim. The casing is superb with the only notable flaw being an encased bubble on the reverse.
The interior is very clean with no notable scratches or marks from use or storage. The base has a ground pontil and has light shelf wear as expected. The amber glass is wonderfully clear with an orange glow under UV light. The vase is in the Matsu-No-Ke style developed by Fredrick Carter at Stevens & Williams in 1884, except with amber applied decor and a white floral Matsu-No-Ke is applied crystal. It features Japanesque applied flowers, stems and leaves and is generally found on baskets and vases.This vase has a wonderful oval body and round flared rim with amber crest on Stevens & Williams peachblow. It's a beautiful vase, perfect for any Victorian decor or antique art glass collection. Pictures are of the item(s) you will receive.
