Cranberry/Vaseline Covered Dish
« on: April 22, 2008, 11:55:34 PM »
Evening or night everyone. I went to a local sale today where it turned out the estate was from a family who came to the US in 1908. 95% of the sale was porcelain, silver, china...very little glass at all, but two pieces stood out. The first is a quilted Amberina squat vase, 7" height, 6" diameter, top opening is 4 1/2" X 2 1/2" gold decorated with a few aquatic scenes, probably Bohemian but figured I'd confirm with the board. Second piece is what the daughters told me their Grandmother called a  caviar pot, Cranberry & Uranium (reacts) gold decorated, measures 8" height, 5 3/4" diameter & 2 3/4" deep. Again probably Bohemian, but I am requesting opinions as the accuracy of my hunch. Sad story with this one...I arrived only 15 minutes into the sale & the caviar pot had (I was informed) a German sterling spoon which fit it & in those 15 minutes someone has stolen the spoon. Any/all thought appreciated. Thanks, Ken

I'm guessing French on this one. Where did the family come from?

Thanks for the response. I should have said Germany in the post. Ken

I am thinking Bohemian (now Bavaria) region of Germany.  about 1900.  very cool piece and wish I had it, with or without the spoon.

Indeed a beauty, Ken - congratulations!
Perhaps Grandmother's surname or nÊe could help further? Just an idea...

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thanks Pamela & MRVG...I was making small talk with one of the daughters since she was upset about the spoon & the Germany family history came up, but I didn't ask their name. Ken
