Quilted Amberina Decorated Vase
« on: April 22, 2008, 11:57:45 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 think it's most likely Harrach, circa 1890. Harrach did this quilted pattern, and Harrach also did amberina, uranium - and they for doggone sure did enamel. Plus, I've seen those ugly feet on other Harrach pieces. Reference Truitt's Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880-1940 for examples of Harrach quilted (p. 57) and amberina (p.58).

Thanks for the response. I should have said the family was originally from Germany in the first post. Ken
