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 née could help further? Just an idea...

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
