Aventurine vase _ age & origin? With pictures now
« on: May 27, 2007, 01:21:12 AM »
10" tall aventurine vase.  Opinions regarding origin and age are appreciated.  My guess is North American circa 1900.  Thanks for looking.

Wonderful piece, most likely done by The Venice and Murano Glass Company (Salviati & C.) some time between 1872 and 1895.
