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

Thank you very much!

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?

Thank you very much!

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!
