Aesthetic Period Turquoise enamelled vase
« on: October 06, 2007, 01:49:41 PM »
I am rather stumped by the nationality of this gorgeous vase... I bought this and a green enamelled biscuit barrel, having PROMISED myself I would stick to things that I knew at least something about, but I got carried away...

So any help at all would be appreciated, even if only to start me off on my research. I have looked at the major Victorian glass sites, and I don't reckon the enamelling is French. The colour of the glass is very distinctive, but I haven't seen it anywhere yet.  The rim is dagged and enamelled, I think this is usually indicative of Bohemian?

thanks for any help..

as before, main pic below, gallery here

Very nice

are you sure its not french?

This blue was a very typical colour for Aesethetic period French

Its similar to both Clichy and Auguste Jean pieces -but doesn't look quite the quality of either.

I'd suggest a more minor french house copying these two -but still of the period

cheers

Mike

Thanks Mike, since when have you known me REALLY sure about anything ???   ;D ;D

that is a good suggestion for French, I did wonder if the colour was good for a specific country. Do you think my estimate for date of 1880-1905 would be about right - I am basing this on the Japanoise design, these dates would be right for Porcelain, I assume they would match up for glass?

And is the dagged edge specific to any particular period/area?

Hi

Obviously this is without handling it -but Yes date sound about right -most of this stuff was even tighter dated  to 1885-1890 - the dagged edge looks like a cheap/easier version of the 'hot' applied decocation often used on these pieces.

Next time you are doing a Christmas list add - 'Le Genie Du Verrier De L'Europe'  -by Cappa  -wonderful book! 
-mind you if you do - it would spoil my fun looking them all up for you!

Cheers

Mike

This is very late :) but I came across this thread searching for another vase and I think your vase has many similarities with this one, which has an attribution of 'probably Harrach' .  The enamelling at the top of the pink looks the same or very similar to yours as well although the pink one is dimpled.

I vote for Legras on both of them just to be obnoxious.

that's just fine
seeing how a large amount of Legras production was in fact secretly made by Harrach anyway!
