Cut glass vase - Edwardian?
« on: September 30, 2008, 10:11:28 PM »
This is the second piece of cut glass I bought recently, I feel it is in the same style as the fruit bowl I also posted.

Again I would love an idea of the era this belongs to, and if I am correct in believing it to be quite old.  I would also like to know the method of engraving these pieces of glass, if anyone knows how they did it?

Thanks

I still have this vase sitting waiting to be labelled :(

Can anyone give me any pointers towards whether I should write Victorian, Edwardian or modern onto it please?  Or maybe something else altogether?

Hi, this style of cutting is almost certainly 30's but the vase looks to be late Victorian. So i think the vase came first and the cutting was done later, WH!

Except that if it's Bohemian, a lot of the styles carried on into the 30s, so it could all be 30s

Hi
Thanks for your thoughts :)

I might have to write on it c1900-1930 then ;)

I wish labels were a bit bigger so I could write the whole puzzle down and let people make their own minds up, but even with tiny writing that would be a bit difficult :)  I already have so many explanatory labels standing next to pieces in my sales cabinet that it looks like a museum, but they take up valuable space where I could fit in more glass!  My husband is starting to complain about the huge piles of boxes building up around the house, but I tell him that all antique dealers have huge amounts of stock, far more than they could possibly sell in years - it is true, isn't it? ;)
