Shaded pink Victorian cylinder vase
« on: October 05, 2007, 03:27:42 PM »
Another pink piece (the last for today... ;D

Again, there seem several possibilities, and I can't make an educated decision, so any help gratefully received.

Shaded pink over opal, ground rim.  Matt gilt and peach coloured enamel to prunus blossom, very dark gilding to greek wave pattern below rim.  It has a very aesthetic period look to me, so may be English?

Height 6.75 ins 175 mm, dia at rim 3 isn 80 mm.

Hi again Lynne, :)
the decoration has a look of Thomas Webb style.
The shaded colouration is one that gets called Peachblow. This was originally an American type of glass in turn inspired by a famous Chinese porcelain vase. A number of U.S firms made variants on Peachblow, & Webb made it too. It was also made in Bohemia, Harrach has been identified as producing a Peachblow style glass.
Peachblow is a most contentious colour in glass. Depending on the maker it can shade from light to deep pink, or have more orangey-pink tones that shade to red.
Webb Peachblow tends towards the more orangey tones, so going by colour alone it probably isn't Webb.
I'm leaning towards Bohemian.
Sorry I can't be more specific!
Marinka.
More glass than class!

Thank you Marinka, that;s all a great help. 

I thought that peachblow was a satinny glass, not this shiny smooth glass?  Is that wrong?

Hi Lynne,
Peachblow can be satin (acid finish) or glossy.
(Burmese is the same, although glossy is rarer than satin in this glass.)
