Those Brockwitz "Curved Star" celery vases (company pattern name was Zurich) were made in the 1920s and 1930s.

The story that I heard about "celery glass" was that at some point in history?
British glassmakers were forbidden to make anything except utilitarian glass.
But they still wanted to make "art glass" so they came up with this sort of thing.Crackled glass with CELERY etched onto one of the pair.

I've got the other one and that has no "celery" on it!

SteveM - it was the tax thing that Adam D mentioned earlier in the thread. Utiltarian glassware attracted a lower tax than fancy glass for frivolous uses such as floral decoration! So, if the "vase" is of a shape that could hold a head of celery, then the factory could call it a vase and it wouldn't attract as much tax.

Frank - you can stand down - Gareth's just teasing  :lol:

Gareth - we could always go the classy French way and call them Coupe lave-raisins.

And on a final note of interest - the Curved Star celery which is shown in the Brockwitz catalogue as a celery (traubenspuler etc etc) is also shown on the Blumenvase section as a Flower vase. If you offer a dual use then you'll sell more!
