Another different Uranium Snake Cut Glass vase
« on: August 03, 2007, 06:09:13 AM »
Hi all,

I just bought this vase today. I was positive Id seen one of these somewhere but I searched the board and found all different snake vases, but not like this.

Just over 8 inches high, with cut base and top, like crystal. Uranium glass snake winding around. As is my luck, no signature that I can see.  I never thought Id say I loved a vase with a snake on it, but I do! My glowy collection is starting to get bigger  ;D

Can anyone suggest a date or any particular description. After a night and day looking, Im all googled out on search terms to even bring up anything close. I keep getting Loetz as the snake vases and I KNOW its not even in that vicinity..

Sorry to bump the post but his vase is driving me nuts!! You would think I could find at least one similar one..

You have to have a bit of patience here, Selina! Sometimes it takes a while for someone to drop in who can help. Can't really help you with the identification. I think the style might have been popular in the late 1800s but that's as far as I know - hopefully someone who knows more will be along at some stage. Here are a few variations on the theme, but none are yours. Here's a vase by Harrach (scroll down to item 7174), and an unidentified pair of vases, an epergne, a decanter, a really extraordinary Baccarat vase, a much less exciting vase, Loetz, another Loetz, and a goblet. I've no idea whether any of the attributions given for those items are right either.

Try searching on "applied snake decoration" or "applied serpent decoration" and glass.

Thanks Cathy. :)

You may have misunderstood my intentions...I do have patience..I wasnt really expecting an ID that quick, if at all. I was just looking for other search terms that I could use really. Sometimes you can look and look and a search term that is common for someone else to use, isnt thought of by another.

Anyway, thanks for the links.. and I will keep searching.

After some searching, Ive come across a piece of info in a glass book.. Glass and Glassware by George Savage. Its an older book..but I found a butter dish in it with a green glass snake on it and if Im allowed to quote the book..

quote" Stourbridge, last quarter of the 19th century. The snake is a not infrequent ornament on Stourbridge glass of this period."end quote

Does anyone have any books on Stourbridge? I have no other info at all..except for this one picture and its on a butter dish of opal glass.

Thanks
